Lakeside pond to be drained

The water level in Lakeside Skating Pond will be lowered Wednesday, the city of Fort Wayne has announced.

The level will be lowered 2 feet to 3 feet to take soil borings, which will determine the condition of the pond's clay liner, the city's parks and recreation department said in a statement.

The pond is expected to be refilled by Friday, after the samples have been collected, the statement said.
