Dam Repairs Nearly Complete at Lake Beseck; Water Level Remains Low
Lake Beseck water levels remain low more than a year after it was drained by state environmental workers to prepare for a $2.6 million dam renovation.

“All we are waiting on is the rain,” said Mark June-Wells, Ph.D, director of Water Resource Services at All Habitat Services. The limnologist and plant ecologist was contracted by the town nearly two years ago to assist with its vegetation and water quality issues. “The weather is not cooperating.”

The 116-acre lake was drawn down approximately 10 to 15 feet so that the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection could finish a dam renovation project, now nearing completion.

“The lake looks terrible, it’s coming up painfully slow,” said Middlefield First Selectman Jon Brayshaw. “Unfortunately, it’s now filled with weeds beyond description.”

Weed Clearing in Burma - Inle Lake, a freshwater lake in the Nyaungshwe Township of Taunggyi District of Shan State is the second largest lake in Myanmar. It has an estimated surface area of 44.9 square miles. Photographer Gavin Burnett caught an image of two girls collecting weeds and debris from the shallow waters on Inle Lake. The weeds are used as compost on floating vegetable farms that are built on island of floating water hyacinths.
