Smoke around lake

The smoke—more deep gray than deep purple—on Lake Norman this afternoon is apparently drifting from the western side of the lake. There was a controlled burn under way at Cowan’s Ford Wildlife Refuge, according to Cornelius Police. To prevent dangerous fires and reduce coverage of invasive species, the  County uses prescribed or controlled burns from time to time.

Burns are conducted to mimic natural disturbances as closely as possible.
