Default I would hope the Lake is more pristine today...

Based on much of the history I've ready, I would not be surprised to learn that the lake is now more pristine than it might have been during the times shown in these photos.
We spent a lot of money improving the quality of the Lake. I hope it did some good. I believe there was an asbestos factory in Meredith that dumped the stuff into the bay, and it lies there today encapsulated in mud. We don't do that stuff anymore.
