EVANSDALE, Iowa (AP) - The city of Evansdale has been draining Meyers Lake for a variety of reasons, including making its shoreline more accessible to the public.

Mayor Doug Faas told the Waterloo-Cedar Rapids Courier (https://bit.ly/2gBrOZs ) that riprap - large boulders - on the shoreline had become overgrown with trees, making the shoreline inaccessible to most people and unsafe for anglers trying to negotiate the area.

The trees have been cleared away and many of the larger boulders pushed into the water for fish habitat. The shoreline is being reseeded where the boulders were removed.

The shoreline work is being funded by a $75,000 state grant.

Repairs and maintenance also are being done on the weir and floodgate at the southeast corner of the lake.
