Clean up a Lake while Diving
Lake Murray is Columbia’s destination for fun in the sun. When thousands of party people hit the lake every summer there’s sure to be some trash. We took a dive and had a great time cleaning it up!
The Dreher Shoals Dam was constructed between 1927 and 1930, giving birth to Lake Murray.
Covering approximately 50,000 acres of land and 650 miles of shoreline, Lake Murray is the recreational destination for residents of Lexington and Columbia.
While most enjoy the lake life topside with a cold drink in hand, there is a group who prefer to hang out down under.
Today, our friends at Wateree Dive Center and the SCUBA community got together to care for the environment, picking up more than 100 pounds of trash from the bottom of the lake near the dam.
