Lake patrol officers sought, piezometer install resumes

The Franklin County Water District is seeking qualified applicants to fill two lake patrol positions, and work has resumed on the installation piezometers to monitor moisture in the dam on Lake Cypress Springs.

  “The lake patrol officers are a unique peace officer, the positions are not the same as traditional law enforcement, and it takes a particular type of person to perform all the duties required,” said District Manager David Weidman.
