Summer of 2014: Elizabeth lake sustained a back-up of water from a culvert that was blocked for months. Surrounding properties suffered flood damage, cattail islands floated to the north end of lake destroying lake access and currently, still preventing use of the educational dipping pond platform.
Summer of 2015: A well pump was tested by the City for multiple days resulting in paths being washed out on more than one occasion, eroded gullies and a sediment bar across Jim Smith Creek.
