Letter of Map Revision - LOMR
1976 Lindo Lake Environmental Impact Report - Received from Bill Saumier, County Parks & Recreation Dept, "During a search through old records from Iron Mountain, I found this EIR from 1976 from when Lindo lake was really just a pond. You’ll see in the document that the lake was later expanded to its current size when 15 additional acres were added. It appears from this document that the east and west basins were “normally dry” except following winter rain events. There has been a long history of wanting Lindo Lake to be a larger lake than just the original pond and seasonal lake that it has been. This EIR documents the true historical conditions of Lindo Lake."
