Most of Oakhurst’s storm water infrastructure dates to the early-mid 20th century. New McMansions and deforestation throughout Oakhurst have created large areas of new impervious surface that the infrastructure cannot handle.

Ted,

I’m glad it’s catching water and preventing flooding to other properties, but if it’s like that, it is indeed a lake FULL of poo. I know most part users pick up after their dogs as well as they can, but it’s impossible to get it all.

I sure wouldn’t want any kids or pets to get sick from playing in that filthy water.

Oakhurst resident’s post to my FB page. I went by the Oakhurst dog park the morning of Aug. 11 and the comment author was correct. The intersection of East Lake Dr. and Second Ave. did in fact smell like a giant open sewer.
