Default Huge lake proposed between Omaha and Lincoln, wow!

Breaking news! I watched my local Omaha news tonight and learned that there's a new lake being proposed that would run from West Omaha towards Lincoln 26 miles long by 8 miles wide. When you think about it, that's a pretty good sized lake for the Omaha area, considering we have nothing. I'm pretty excited, anything to get off the Missouri River...

Relax Harper. He was refering to Mayor Nagins remarks the other day. That was funny.

That is very cool about the lake. How deep wil it be? Will it be for a hydro electric damn? How many people will displaced? Can you get lake front property?
