  Residents of Baker might have noticed a strange rig wandering around Baker Lake. The boring outfit pictured is collecting soil data from the upper Baker Lake drainage, between upper and lower Baker Lake, and around the shoreline at designated areas. Jim Potts of DOWL (an environmental services firm) and his crew were here  boring holes 20 feet deep for soils analysis and establishing several monitoring wells. This data is essential for the Baker Lake Restoration Project.
