Faux Flood Control in Fort Worth

It appears the latest Trinity River Vision Update has shown Durango a few new things, like the Trinity River Vision's Interior Water Feature.

Below is part of a long Durango post about the Trinity River Vision Update:

When the Trinity River Vision Boondoggle was first hoisted on Fort Worth, about the biggest element touted, before the much needed flood control was added, was that there would be this big Town Lake, covering over 30 acres, giving downtown Fort Worth a water feature that would make other towns in America green with envy.

As the TRV Vision began its slow fade into Boondoggle land, the Town Lake started to shrink. Eventually it became a fraction of its original size, with the locals now referring to it as Pond Granger. Or the Kay Puddle.

Well, this graphic in this latest TRV Boondoggle Update does not refer to the former Town Lake, there is now no mention of a lake, pond or puddle.

The Town Lake Pond Puddle is now called the "Interior Water Feature."

George Orwell would be proud.
