McDonald Lake Being Drained

APD Dive Team at Martin Road Lake Source: Amarillo Police Department

The lake at John Stiff Park is being drained. McDonald Lake is being drained by the City of Amarillo for an improvement project to the pump and intake infrastructure.

City officials say the lake has to be partially drained to make the improvements, and they did not want to do it during peak recreational use time, such as the summer or early fall.

The project is thought to be completed by the end of January if the weather permits.
