Members of the Regional Sustainable Business Collation met this past week for a brief presentation on the history of Cedar Lake in Cedar Rapids Iowa, then a walk around it on a hiking, biking trail. The small lake was created for cooling a coal-fired steam generation plant in the early 1900s. In 2008 the plant was severely damaged when the area flooded and is undergoing demolition at this time. Now that its not used for industrial purposes a group was formed, Friends of Cedar Lake, to create and implement a plan to improve the lake and surrounding area for recreational uses.
