Project Spotlight: Colyer Lake Multi-Use Trail

Then in 2013, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission announced that it was going to permanently drain the lake due to structural issues with the dam. Having deemed Colyer Lake a low priority for repair, officials planned to allow it to renaturalize.
For those living around the scenic 67-acre lake, that news was hard to swallow.
