I took some pictures of the FLOD today from Heritage Park (while I was there for Arlington NW.) Here they are:
Capitol Lake with Dead Salmon Amid Thick Weeds
Thick Mat of Weeds Covering Capitol Lake's Northeast Shore
Capitol Dome Rises Above Festering Weed Mass in Capitol Lake
Kinda looks normal here
But don't look down!
Are these weeds just part of the normal growth cycle?
Maybe it is time to consider estuary restoration?
An estuary would make a great backdrop for the legislative building dome and the rest of the capitol campus.
