The dredging project was intended to increase depths, says Ted Jack, BREC's assistant superintendent of planning, operations and resources, but an abundance of cypress stumps left behind by the WPA created a major hurdle.

The excavated materials-spoils-were used to create what eventually became Wampold Park on Stanford Avenue, which expanded recreational capacity, Jack says. But even as the lakes attracted more outdoor enthusiasts, they continued to resist human intervention below the surface, slowly marching back to their past life as a swamp.
"It was a faulty lake from the beginning," he says.
Despite its lack of funding, Jack says, the plan was well received by civic leaders, including then-LSU Chancellor Mark Emmert.
Jack says the water quality was degrading again and would continue to worsen. Moreover, the easiest way to construct or expand paths and beachheads was to use the excavated material.
"If we didn't have dredging," he says, "we knew we were going to have trouble."
Split three ways, Jack says, it seemed doable.
"From a use and recreational standpoint, they're the best they've ever been," says Jack, who wonders if dredging only part of the lakes might be a reasonable start.

"You can spend hours and hours just hiking the trails," BREC Assistant Superintendent Ted Jack said Monday morning before a mid-morning guided hike.

Jack said Tuesday is a "soft opening" so residents can start to use the area.
He also said there will be public meetings in the future to get input on creating a master plan for the conservation area.
