West Point Lake on the Chattahoochee downstream from Atlanta caught a lot of debris from the recent flood in Metro Atlanta.

Susanna Capelouto toured the lake with Joe Maltese, a consultant to the city of La Grange.

They spoke with All Things Considered host Rickey Bevington about the environmental impact and worries about clean up.
