We use the lake as a cooling medium for our steam plant. Since Sunday these shad have been waging war against us. Last night was the worst. We would fill one of the baskets in the background every hour. We ran out of dumpsters and had to start putting them on the ground. We have "Shad Nets" that we put out every year to prevent this. The little guys came early this year though. In 1999 they were so bad they took the unit off line. Pretty bad when fish can take down a nuke plant.
