Posted August 02, 2018 06:22:07The lake in Lake Mary is a popular swimming spot for many residents, including those in the fishing industry.
But it is also a lake of filth and pollution.
A recent investigation by NBC10 found that some of the water in the lake is polluted, causing it to be known as the “lake of filths.”
Mary was named after the daughter of the famed author and writer Joseph Priestley, who wrote and collected the Bible.
But some residents believe the lake has become polluted by a large amount of sewage, which causes the lake to be dirty.
“We’ve had some really terrible conditions over the years,” said Mary’s mother, Sandra.
“You get in your car and it’s going to smell like your car, and you don’t know what it is.”
Sandra said her family has been dealing with this problem for years, even though they live in a small, rural community.
“There’s not a lot of people that are able to swim here,” she said.
Sandra and her husband, Scott, live in the small town of Houghton, which is in the middle of Lake Pontiac.
They live next door to the town of Lake Mary, and the lake’s reputation as a swimming destination was well known.
“I think the problem is that the lake just kind of takes on a life of its own, it’s just something you don and can’t really control,” Sandra said.
The couple is not the only ones to have had a difficult time.
“It’s hard to keep the water off the lake,” Sandra told NBC10.
“You just can’t have a swimming area, and they can’t allow the swimming,” she added.
“When we get there, the lake will smell like you drive by, and it’ll be like a swamp, like an ocean,” Sandra explained.
The water in Lake Joseph is so filthy that it has a reputation for being a cesspool for filth.
The area has been named a “pool of filh,” which is a derogatory term for a man who lives in a large, decaying home.
“The water is actually a foul-smelling swamp,” Sandra described.
“The filth is on top of the sewage, and then it gets up there, and that’s where it’s most visible.”
The couple says they have had to move, because of the foul-making.
“All the time we try to be a good neighbor, and if you see it, and see the filth, we just try to get a good sense of what it’s like,” Sandra added.
Mary has a population of only 6,000 people.
It is one of the smallest towns in Lake County, but Sandra said she is not sure that the city of Hopley, where they live, is the best option for them to stay.
“Hopley is a great place to live, but they don’t allow swimming,” Sandra insisted.
“They just have to let the water come in.
It’s the lake of the filths.
And the filh is just on top.”ABC10 reached out to Hopleys spokesperson, Michael DeGroff, but did not receive a response in time for publication.
