Well in "local" news Tempe Town Lake is now empty as one of four rubber dams tore and caused the lake to drain. You read right, a rubber dam. There are hopes that a new dam structure will be in place and the lake refilled by early November so as to not impact the lakes biggest event, the Ironman. I hope they have it fixed in time as it would be terrible to train the whole summer and then not have a lake to swim in. I wonder if the race directors ever took into consideration that the lake just might not be there from one year to the next.
