Manmade lake disappears in 4 days
St. Louis Post-Dispatch |
"Recent heavy rain may have washed Lake Chesterfield down the drain. A sinkhole at the bottom of the 23-acre lake in Wildwood swallowed millions of gallons of water in a few days this week... Nearby residents say the water in the man-made lake began draining rapidly last weekend. By Wednesday afternoon, the lake had vanished, revealing a squishy, muddy basin and a 50-foot-wide crack in the lake's northern end... Scores of people peered over the barren landscape, where cranes feasted on dead fish on the lake floor. Several observers pinched their noses from the smell of the fish and boggy lake bottom. The drained lake also revealed shells littering the lake bed and a bike stuck in the mud."
