As the video explains, ten years ago the maximum depth of Lake Harmony was 31 feet. Today it is averaging about 12 ft in the deepest areas. Sediment currently occupies between 9 to 13 feet of the lake bottom. Engineering studies have confirmed that erosion from poorly maintained storm sewers, removal of vegetation, leaf debris, construction waste, and human activity have led to the current crisis.
