Crews prepping Fountain City Lake for more maintenance


Crews are once again drawing down water levels at the Fountain City Lake in north Knoxville.

Last year, the city drained the lake to make repairs and keep it from leaking. They filled it up again to make sure the repairs worked.

Now, officials are preparing to survey the lake.

Last week, wildlife officials relocated 200 fish from the lake. Once they remove them all, crews can really start working.
