There is a small body of water on Pine Island in Lee County known by those who wanted it preserved as Willow Lake. In the last couple of months it’s been at the center of controversy. This fall crews allegedly destroyed the lake while clearing land for a palm tree farm. The owner of the property admits they did cover up a restricted area though he claims there was no actual lake. While state and federal agencies investigate, he has offered up a restoration plan. WGCU’s Luis Hernandez has this report.
