State park has record low water levels

April 27, 2004

Cook County - Boating through the Little River at Reed Bingham was a little more difficult Tuesday because of the low water level.

The water is about three feet lower than usual, but its not because of the lack of rain. Park officials are controlling the levels, so they can spray the water weeds Wednesday. "The best way to get rid of those weeds is with an acquatic herbicide and we have to drop the levels to get a good treatment on them," said Paul Bradshaw, Park Manager.

The water level should be back to normal by this weekend.
