OK, Silver lake in its current form is essentially a man made storage reservoir for the Island's drinking water, it is fed off of NYC main water tunnels and rises and falls as the levels and pressures change...it is essential to keeping SI water pressure up..
There is NO boating on the lake(that would be CLove Lake), it is pretty well protected(the reservoir itself) and is surrounded by a nice Public Golf Course and park
