Hipster Lake and the flooding of ex-marshland

When you make a movie like this, it’s nearly impossible to cover every aspect of the topic and still have the flick be entertaining – that is, you have to pick your battles.

Luckily, a local reporter noticed the rampant flooding in the park and put together this interesting, well-researched article on it:
