Looks like it used to be bigger.......there is an outer ring of trees where the old water line would have been. So that section would have been
shallower, and the area now containing water would be the 'deep end'. Maybe less used now, not being refilled for some time, considering the second
ring of trees is fairly well grown.
It might have been deep/big enough for some sort of testing, whether an entire sub would have been put in there or not......
I'm not so sure it would have been recreational.....looks to be too small for water skiing, and a nice clean, maybe indoor, swimming pool would go
over better with the high paid, maybe used to a sterile environment crowd. ??
My guess would be waste water, sewage treatment or holding for other excess water. If the facility has been 'downsized' or partially moved to
another location ( as is rumored), that could account for the decrease in the amounts of water they would use and need to treat.??
