CARY — The centerpiece of a Cary neighborhood is nowat the center of a debate.

Last month, the homeowner's association pulled the plug to fix one ofLake Kildaire'sdrains. The lake has refilled a little bit, but people who live near itstill have an empty feeling.

"I think what was really awful was therewas no vegetation for the animals and thefish died," says homeowner Ann McConville.

The problems about the lake are not over. Some neighbors are concernedabout a new homeowners association plan to build a walkway around thelake as well as putting in silt islands in various sections of the lake.

"What if we were to find a contractor or somebody whoneeded landfill that could come and take itaway. Why haven't we looked into that," McConville says. "It seems thatwould be a more feasible, financial aspect, rather than theseislands. They tried it before."

McConville and some of her other neighbors haveformed a lake watchdog group. They plan to hold the homeowners associationaccountable for any changes they do not agree with.

They also plan to hold a homeowners meeting Wednesday night to discussthe lake situation.
