Healthy creek, lake can co-exist in Bella Vista

Subscriber onlyThank you for printing my earlier letter in the Democrat-Gazette concerning Bella Vista Lake. From the Aug. 30 article in The Weekly Vista, I feel we can now have an informed discussion. The lake was established in 1915 because, as Mr. Chris Fuller said in the article, it's in a lowland area. It doesn't matter if it is a lake or creek, the water will congregate there. Do we want an organized gathering of water or a chaotic approach? A dam keeps a consistent level of water in the area. The creek will swell with rain but afterwards it becomes a low-water stream with ponds of stagnant, algae-covered water around it, which is what is happening now.
