Chitral Hays started this petition to Tempe City Council and

Tempe Town Lake is a man-made lake in Tempe, Arizona. At nearly one billion gallons, this “lake” is a blight on our natural landscape and an insult to water conservation efforts amidst one of the worst droughts in Southwest history. Learn more about why we should Drain Tempe Town Lake.

Reasons To Drain The Lake

• Water Conservation
• Ugliness
• Not Natural
• Shrine to human hubris

Remember in 2010 when the dam’s bladders burst (not as gross as it sounds) and the bed of Tempe Town Lake was laid bare? Wasn’t that beautiful? Let’s demand that our city leaders reverse the damage done by installing this man-made lake.
