Tulare Lake

Tulare Lake was a large shallow lake that existed several hundred years ago and presumably thousands of years before that, which is now a shallow basin. Native Americans built reed[?] boats and fished in this lake before it was drained by white settlers for agriculture. In fact, aggressive groundwater[?] pumping since the draining of the lake has resulted in a significant lowering of the water table and subsidence of the land.
