Posted August 25, 2018 18:16:00By Daniel J. McDanielEagle Lake, located on the island of Nacio in Costa Rica, is the oldest lake in the world.
Its name is Latin for “wandering eagle”, a reference to its proximity to the sea.
Since it was established by the Spanish in the 15th century, it has grown to be a popular tourist destination, attracting more than 3 million visitors every year.
A few years ago, the lake’s waters began to change dramatically, causing locals to become fearful.
“I was so scared, I was afraid to come out,” said a 26-year-old resident of the lake, whose name is not being released for security reasons.
As she watched the water recede, she said she decided to take a swim to clear her head.
EagleLake has not been in use for nearly a century, so the water quality was in such poor condition that it was thought to be unsafe.
The lake has been in decline since 2008, when a new water treatment plant was built on the northern edge of the island.
According to the Costa Rican government, the facility has been a net drain on the lake for two years, causing the water to slowly rise.
This is the first time in its history that EagleLake has gone dark.
But residents have begun to complain about the water and the lack of fish in the lake.
One of them, Nacho Carrero, said he began to see fewer fish on his lake than he had been in the past.
Carrero told the Costa Rica’s National Radio that he noticed a decrease in fish in August.
He added that the lake is now about 20 percent full.
Nacho Carreon is concerned about the future of the Lake Nacsino, which is currently in decline, due to the water treatment facility on the southern edge of Costa Rica.
His son, Carlos, said the water is so bad that he’s afraid he won’t be able to fish in his area in the future.
Carlos Carrero told Costa Rica Radio that the current lake has decreased fish numbers by 40 percent in the last two years.
In a video recorded by the local news outlet, Nacional, Carlos said he believes the water may have reached the point of no return.
For the past five years, the government has been trying to fix the problem, installing a new treatment plant on the south side of the area to remove the algae that is also known as “the white stuff”.
In April, Costa Rica declared a state of emergency for the lake and declared a moratorium on all fish-related activities.
However, according to the National Radio, the new plant has not yet been completed, meaning that the fish will remain in the Lake for at least a year.
Carlos said he hopes the lake will be able, at some point, to be completely safe.
It is a question of whether or not it will be safe for him and his family to come back to their village, which sits on the north shore of the northern island of El Salado, in 2019.
I have a boat that will take me there.
We are looking for a way to have a better life.
Carlo said that the only way to help is by educating people about what is happening to the lake so that they don’t take it for granted.
Isabella Sánchez, a spokeswoman for the Ministry of Natural Resources, told the Radio that in the next few years, more than 4 million visitors to the Lake will be visiting the area.
Although the government is trying to help, she also noted that the situation has become so dire that many residents have abandoned their homes to fend for themselves.
