When you’re cleaning your house, your toilet may be a prime candidate for soaking up water, but that’s not the only reason you should take the extra step to shower.
According to the National Park Service, the Pinecrown Lake is one of the most water-polluted lakes in the nation.
This lake has an estimated 10,000 people swimming in it each year, according to the park service.
And for those who do, the water can be a little murky.
“It’s very difficult to clean,” says Steve Wiebe, a senior biologist at the National Parks Service.
You may have heard of this particular lake. “
In fact, you could have your house in the middle of the lake and your house is directly above it.”
You may have heard of this particular lake.
It’s a popular swimming spot for both the tourists and locals alike.
But it’s also home to an alarming amount of trash and garbage.
As of March, the National Wildlife Federation reported there were 1,924 pieces of trash in the lake.
And the problem goes beyond just trash.
“You can’t just throw out your garbage,” Wiebesays.
“And even if you do throw it out, you have to put it in a bag or container to be able to dispose of it.
So it’s very hard to clean.”
There’s also a chance you could end up in the water for a long time if you let it.
“There’s a lot of people who are out in the sun all the time, and there’s just a lot that gets thrown in the mud,” says Wiebee.
“When you have that type of thing, you can get pretty old.”
So if you’re in the area and want to get out of the sun, make sure you do so safely, and clean up after yourself.
You might want to consider visiting one of Pinecrest Lake’s few other parks, Lake Allatoona, which is about 100 miles south of Lake Alltona.
There, there’s also an abundance of wildlife.
The park offers a great view of the surrounding mountains, and it’s just off Highway 70.
You can get there from Fort Collins by taking Highway 20, heading east, or by taking I-25 to Exit 38, heading west.
In a few hours, you’ll be at the parking lot for the park.
It’ll be filled with alligators and other critters.
But if you decide to stop at one of those picnic tables, you might want something else to drink, too.
If you’ve got a bottle of water nearby, just take a sip and let it soak up all the water you’ll have to use.
Wieben says the best way to wash your hands after bathing is to soak them in water.
But be sure to wash in a well-ventilated area, especially when it’s hot out.
That way, your hands won’t get too hot.
“Washing your hands in a sink is not ideal,” he says.
“If you’re doing it for personal hygiene, then yes, it can be messy.”
And don’t forget to clean up the dishes.
You’ll need them, too, so they don’t get dirty and mold can grow.
Wiegemann says you can wash them in a bucket of water, too—but don’t put too much water into the water.
“I don’t want to do that, because it’s going to be hard to get the water out of there, so just use a little bit,” she says.
Wieland says there’s a good chance the lake will be cleaned up before it reaches the end of its life.
“We’re looking forward to seeing it in the next couple of years,” she explains.
But you should always do your part to keep Pinecret Lake clean.
“Clean up your bathroom,” says McNeil.
“That’s one of our biggest issues.
We just really need to clean this up.”
