Waldo Lake - pristine?

Appears so - at least the attempts to keep these important headwaters so. After some often contentious discussions the process of making it motor-free has taken flight - literally. After banning motors on boats in the past few years - sights were set on seaplanes which continued to use the lake with impunity. Citing concerns for water quality and protection against invasive species many have argued - with apparent success - that no fossil fueled type devices can power vessels on these waters. Some concession to limited electric power have been included in the recent discussion that just passed the Senate committee. Looks to have taken hold for with good support for future law - consideration and thoughts can be shared with your Legislators during these final reviews.
