Lake construction may cause problems NKU awarded a contract for the $2.4 million lake renovation project Oct. 26. Construction will begin immediately: the lake will be drained and the fish will be transported to a new home around Nov. 11. Assistant Vice President for Facilities Management Larry Blake said in an e-mail to NKU students that the construction will result in some inconvenience. This project will impact parking and traffic flow near the lake, as a portion of lot J will be closed on Nov. 4. Odors coming from the bottom of the lake may also affect students.
