Officials start draining Minsi Lake

UPPER MOUNT BETHEL TWP., Pa. - Authorities have started draining the lake of a popular fishing and boating destination in our area in order to repair a dam.

The $3 million project is going on at Minsi Lake in Northampton County.

Last week, officials drained three feet of water. This week another three feet will be drained.

Next month, officials will try to rescue as many fish as possible before they completely drain the lake.

Once it is dry they will remove and replace the spillway and make other repairs.
