Lake Linden

For years this huge pool of water has been on Linden Street, at Schultz Court. It grows in size, and shrinks occasionally due to lack of rain, it freezes in the winter, but it is always here. About a dozen years ago the city installed a drain, on the opposite side of the intersection, aka, the side the doesn't flood. So day after day, this pool of water sits here.
