I just found this article about an undrainable lake that has begun to swallow towns, and is now on the brink of overflow. I thought it was pretty
interesting. Ive never heard anything about this and actually didnt realize that lakes could hold water like that.
From the source....
DEVILS LAKE, N.D. – It's been called a slow-growing monster: a huge lake that has steadily expanded over the last 20 years, swallowing up
thousands of acres, hundreds of buildings and at least two towns in its rising waters.
These people need to get some kind of drainage and fast. If this lake overflows, who knows how much devistation this could cause. Anyone from North
Dakota on here that has any knowledge of this lake?

No other place in America has faced such a dilemma. The nation's only other significant "closed-basin" lake is the Great Salt Lake, which was
in danger of flooding housing developments in the mid-1980s. But shortly after the state spent $70 million on huge pumps, a dry spell began. Those
pumps now stand idle.
Anywho. I hope they get this lake under control and fast. property and peoples livelyhoods are at stake here.
