And what about the people on Lake Lemon who had massive flood damage due to the overflowing Prince's Lake water going into the tributary that feeds Lake Lemon? The water was the highest it has ever been at Lake Lemon and houses that are valued at $250,000+ sustained damage due to the faulty dam 30 miles north!
