As Homewood Izaak Walton Preserve visitors may have noticed, the Sandhill Lakes are shrinking, putting the fish population at risk, but a solution to the problem is on the way.
The east side of the preserve requires the addition of well water to remain filled all year round, according to the preserve's September newsletter.
Water levels are noticeably low in the lakes on the east side of Izaak Walton Preserve due to an inoperable well pump. Homewood trustees voted Oct. 11 to pay for repairs to the pump. (Eric Crump/H-F Chronicle)
