The lake has more than tripled in size since 1990 and has cost over a billion dollars to suppress it's growth. With no natural way for the lake to drain, it is projected that the lake will continue to grow over the next 10 years! Nearly $300,000 dollars a year are spent pumping water out of the the lake to reduce it's depth by 1 inch!
