Quail Lake refills!
In 2004, the Springs Utilities, which had been supplying Quail Lake with water for decades, decided it was too wasteful to fill the lake with potable water and turned off the spigot. Slowly, the lake began to dry up. But this summer, according to local activist Bill Beaudin, the utility worked out a deal with nearby computer chip maker Atmel to conserve water in the chip-making process and contribute the savings to the lake. It must have worked because now the lake is full.
