The lake level is rising sharply this week after falling for a bit.

It is great to see. I have family comig soon and I want the Lake to look good. It is also a joy to me to see the lake in great shape, not a dried up pond.

I noticed that too. Given the renewed amount of lirio and debris I assume they opened the dams again. This looks to be a particularly bad year for the lirio. I hope they can get on top of it.

Unfortunately doc, the malecons look like crap with the lirio and garbage that floated in.

So true....seems to be a worldwide problem. I think the Malecon especially should be kept in top shape. Labor to do that is cheap but the outgoing mayor is not about to spend any money. Let's hope the new Mayor, whoever he is, will take the Malecon to heart. It can be such a nice walk.

Yesterday, bull dozers were putting piles of trash from the beach area in Chapala into trucks. They are obviously trying but there are overwhelmed by the increased garbage.

At the Chapala malecon, workers have been bulldozing lirio into trucks and hauling it away for months now. If I remember correctly, the govt. bought a special machine for that. They were making good-but-slow progress the last time I was there, but alas, it does remind me of the old saying about shoveling "manure" against the tide.

It's like peeing in the ocean....wasting mills of pesos...they need to fix the problem at the source and consider re spraying

I agree, they need to get it at the source.

The lake continues to rise and has surpassed last year's high. It just proves the point that we don't necessarily have to get a good rainy season "directly overhead" to affect the lake. While not a lot of rain in Ajijic, there have been many floods up the Lerma river basin this year.
