Top Stories: White Rock Lake Reopens; Continuing The Aerobics Movement In Dallas

Jul 3, 2018

The top local stories this morning from KERA News:

White Rock Lake has resumed normal operations again after last week's threat of a major raw sewage leak. Damage to a wastewater pipe in Plano sent more than one million gallons of raw sewage into White Rock Creek about 12 miles upstream of the lake. 

However, crews managed to contain that leak before it reached White Rock Lake.

With the upcoming Fourth of July holiday on Wednesday, recreational lake activities are up and running. The launch at the dog park, where dogs can wade into the water, reopens as well.

Other stories this morning:
