Alamance County lakes, parks soaked from rain

ALAMANCE COUNTY, N.C. — Burlington City Parks and Alamance County lake areas are soaked after flooding from recent storms.

Burlington City Park re-opened Friday after being shut down for July 4th due to standing water and flooding.

Though there was no damage, Parks and Recreation director Tony Laws says trash and debris have overflown into some of the nearby creeks and storm drains.

Lake Cammack was also closed for the Independence Day holiday from standing water and flooding that had the boat dock underwater.

Stoney Creek Marina will be closed this weekend as crews clear the debris from Alamance County’s smallest Lake.

Although overflowing creeks in Alamance County are not unusual, Laws says this is the most rain the region has seen in a while — especially in the northern area.

The Independence Day Fireworks have been rescheduled for August 9 in Burlington as a “Back to School” celebration.
