To the editor:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved with the cleanup of Potter Lake over the last year. This past weekend, my daughter and I were out enjoying the weather on campus and couldn’t believe the transformation of the “lake.” The shoreline has been cleaned up and we were able to walk all the way around the lake.
Even more impressive was the clarity of the water. Prior to the cleanup, the lake was so murky and covered with lily pads and vegetation it was impossible to see more than a couple of inches below the water. The water is now clear and free of vegetation, and we observed several groups of turtles and fish swimming in the lake. Potter Lake is now on par with the structures that surround it, including the Campanile, Memorial Stadium and the Kansas University campus as a whole. Nice job.
