   It appears that there is a problem with the fish in the lake dying. I looked into this a while back and recently got conformation from the Utah Division of Wildlife and the new City of South Jordan Manager said *yes this is a quote*  "there are problems in the  lake with the fish (trout and bass) dying and that the filtering system that Kennecott Land put in the lake "is too good" and that the water is "too clean" and that the reason the fish are dying is because there is no food for them", I guess this has to the natural habitat thing, he also went on the say *yes this is another quote* "the there is only a 50% chance that the City of South Jordan will even take the lake from Kennecott Land at this point..."

If that happens plan on your HOA fees doubling or more...NOT good

Charge the outsiders at the Beach!!

Charge the outsiders at the Beach!!

I live in Daybreak, and I am a little concerned. As a Realtor and a Mortgage professional I saw the benefits of buying in Daybreak. Since the "beach" has gone in, the lake has become full of outside Daybreak residents. Why would people live in Daybreak when they can come in and enjoy our amenities we pay for? We pay a 1% fee when we close on our home for Daybreak and $80.00 per month so far. I have also had a scary incident with my children at the lake with a stranger following them home in his car. The man was just sitting at the lake in his car.  
Lets charge the outsiders for the fis

if anyone doubts the City Manager said this, I will be happy to show you an email from him to myself, KL and the SJ City Council in which he confirms he said the quotes in the article...

I agree with you deepdoodoo, it probablly too costly and the City might not want to take on the cost of maintaining the lake. Who knows...this thing that is concerning is that the City adn the DFW both said the same thing about the water, at diffent times in seperate conversations. So who knows, its not like KL is very forthcoming about anything...

They survive just fine in water so clean you can literally drink from it. I've gotta call "BS" on this one. I think CoSJ is just using an excuse to get out of a very expensive commitment.

I don't believe everything the City says (they did go on record saying this.?.?), but I highly doubt the Division of Wildlife would make it up, what do they have to lose or gain, nothing...if they are both saying it, I believe it to be true, unless I see something that says it's not...just my opinion

Don't buy it...

Until I see a TMDL report done by an environmental or water quality engineer, I don't buy it. It is impossible to get the lake water quality to be that good without the use of a membrane filter (which would take years upon years to fill our lake using a membrane filter... I doubt even a charcoal filter is being used which would be the next best thing!). Scoop, can you ask if they've done such an analysis? I highly doubt they have but their comments are invalid without it.
