Even with the reduction in flow from Folsom Dam, the lake is disappearing at an alarming rate. As it does so, it is revealing more of what lies beneath.
The latest images from MyFolsom.com members include an old metal survey marker, initial carved in rocks, and remnants of an old cemetery.
Mormon Island, Red Bank and Salmon Falls are notable communities which once stood in the area which was to become Folsom Lake. Now, as the lake’s water level continues to drop, more and more remnants of these communities are being revealed.
Hundreds if not thousands of people have been visiting the lake as the news spread, and they are making some amazing discoveries.
