San Luis Obispo county and Monterrey county have been fighting over the right for a lake known as being the "Dragon Lake" or lake Nacimiento. The county's have been fighting because in the late 1950's Monterrey asked our county if they could dam up our lake and make it the shape it is, so our county gave the rights to Monterrey. Since then they have drained the lake to near empty rendering it useless to the community around it.
The lake levels not only effect the people around it, but the wildlife around and in it. Lower lake levels means less water for the fish and leeches to stay in, making leeches more prominent then ever.
