This is a beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut topographical Map of Lake Taneycomo in Taney County, Missouri with the following interesting stats carved into it:
Created in 1913
2,050 Surface Acres
23 Miles Long
52 Miles of Shoreline
Interesting factoid: Lake Taneycomo has the characteristics of both a river and a lake. The shallow colder water, located near the Table Rock Dam, averages 48 °F, resembles a river and permits wading and bank fishing for trout. The average temperature of the water gets warmer and the depth of the lake deepens to more than 50 feet near the Powersite Dam in Forsyth. When Table Rock Dam is generating power its current is very strong throughout its whole length, its water temperature drops, and for all practical purposes it becomes a very deep, cold, fast running river. Exactly how deep, cold, and fast depends on how many generators are being used to generate electricity at Table Rock Dam
(Not all of this information made it onto the map, we just love to read up on the lakes we design).
