Lake levels are down, and as a result boaters are risking damage to their boats every time they go out on the water. After weeks of warm temperatures and a lack of rain fall, water levels at Indian Lake are down 1.5ft.
Once submerged, tree stumps and rocks now sit just inches below the surface of the water. Some boaters are finding the dangers, but at a cost, just ask Mike Turner who now faces a $5,000 repair bill.
While out on the water, Turner ran over a submerged tree stump, tearing the bottom of his boat. To prevent others from hitting the same stump, Turner swam out and marked the stump with a buoy, but that's not slowing down boaters who speed over the choppy water. As for Turner, he says he won't be putting his boat back in the water until water levels rise.
