….I stumbled on the lake thread this morning — the link was titled “TIL Maryland has no natural lakes.” (Ahem: TIL is an acronym for Today I Learned.)
I thought, “Really?”
The post linked to a question-and-answer briefing on Maryland lakes from the Maryland Geological Survey.
“Yes, there are no natural lakes in Maryland,” the survey says. “All of Maryland’s lakes are man-made by damming rivers. Some have been named lakes (e.g., Lake Habeeb in Allegany County and Deep Creek Lake in Garrett County), but most have been named reservoirs (e.g., Loch Raven Reservoir in Baltimore County).”
