Letter to the Editor: What’s happening in the Lake Forest meadow

I think it was the first week of May I started noticing the orange fabric fencing in the Lake Forest meadow. Then it was the equipment readying itself for the assault on the meadow itself. But when I saw the large dirt holes where the meadow had been, I was shocked, aghast, and sad. “What is going on here? How could they do this? Now the dirt will really run-off into the lake.”

At the time I did not know who the “they” were until the other evening when I had the pleasure of meeting one of them. Boy, I cannot tell you how relieved I was to find out that an actual stream restoration is going on in the Lake Forest meadow. Evidently, many years ago in order to build the dwellings that now inhabit the meadow, a culvert was used to divert a once naturally flowing stream. It is exciting to know now that the original stream will be restored along with its indigenous vegetation surrounding it.

I can only suggest that a simple sign posting an explanation as to what was going on would have saved us from a lot of the horrific rumors I was starting to hear about the excavation in the meadow.
