Dam Update – Now at Full Open as of 11/15/2016

The dam was opened to full winter position (maximum outflow) on Tuesday 11/15/2016. After about a week, the water should be at winter level.

Related to the water level, we retrieved the data loggers and took in the buoy November 1. Preliminary analysis is that the lake has turned over and has a uniform temperature of about 50 F.

Again, thank you all for your understanding as we tried to address well water level concerns raised by this unusually dry summer season. While there is little evidence that lake level significantly impacts the water table level, the WLA board felt it prudent to delay the lowering of the lake this year.
