Lake Orange Water Management Breakthrough 2014
  In October a major breakthrough was achieved regarding the management of the Lake Orange water resources.  The details were presented in an email from Buzz Koenig, president of FLO which is reproduced here for the benefit of our site visitors.
To the Friends of Lake Orange
    As I communicated to you last year at this time,  the board members of  'Friends of Lake Orange'  have been engaged in special negotiations with County Commissioners, County Manager/County Staff, and the town of Hillsborough to reach a written agreement to better manage the water resources of Lake Orange.  This agreement contains a provision to minimize withdrawals from Lake Orange so that water levels are within 24 inches from ' full  pool'  (615') -- during the high recreation season from April through October -- to the extent possible considering adequate seasonal waterfall.
