I was looking at a house on MLSLI and I put the address into bing since I like the bing maps better then the ones they send you to with their link. But I saw this lake that is close by that looked a really wierd color. And when I zoomed in there were 2 dredges floating in the water and a bunch of dump trucks and other equipment. I went on Google Earth to save the pics and the water color isn't too far off from a normal lake but still a little odd. And on the bing map the lake is half the size. I was just wondering if anybody on here knew what they were dong there.

Hello to answer your question: that is a sand quarry referred to as the sand pit. I have been living in one of the adjacent houses on Rosewood Lane (about 200 feet from it actually) for 20 or so years. Supposedly once the operation is over they're gonna make it a lake. Mystery Solved

Smile Manorville lake/pond

this is the Manorville sand quarry the reason it is filled with water is because he has dug so deep he hit the water table and that boat in the middle is a dredger. It sucks the sand from the bottom and it goes through that hose that you can see on goggle earth. And then big truck use it for construction ect.
