The Dream Called Lake Auman
Posted on Jan 31st, 2017
A Brief History of Lake Auman
(An Oral History Through Interviews with Mr. Fred Lawrence)
     Originally, the majority of the land which would make up Seven Lakes West belonged to Clyde Auman, Billy Johnson and the MacDonald family. Mr. Fred Lawrence bought assembled acreage in 1976. He hired the engineering firm of Pate, Mullen & Associates to lay out the lake and design the dam.
     There were several ponds and a five-acre lake (Watts Pond) on the property. Mr. Lawrence found that there were approximately 30 springs within the property and he had the engineering firm test these springs to determine if there was sufficient water supplied by these springs to insure that the lake behind the dam would be filled.
     After hiring a Raleigh firm to test drill bore holes every 100 feet across the site of the proposed dam to test for clay content, the engineering firm approved the site and said that it would cost about $1,000,000 to complete the dam. These cost estimates escalated when the Army Corp of Engineers changed the specifications for earthen dams following the failure of a dam in Taccoa, GA. At that time Mr. Lawrence had already spent about $1,300,000 and the dam still required 35 to 40 feet to completion. The base of the dam had to be increased by 100 feet in width.
     During this time, interest rates had climbed from 7% to over 20% and gas prices had risen from $0.35 to a $1.35 a gallon. Mr. Lawrence did not have the capital to finish the project and was forced to sell the whole development to the Prigden brothers.
