7/17/21 Dam Valve to be Opened
Update: The valve WILL NOT be opened at this time due to flooding downstream.
The lake level is high due to the excessive amount of rain we have received.
The dam’s valve will be opened at approximately 1pm today. Note: Currently, the water is too high to cross to get to the valve’s opening mechanism.
Please adjust your boats and ties accordingly for when the water begins to lower.
The entire lake is NO WAKE. It probably will remain at this status for a couple days. When the lake waters recede to normal levels, the no wake lights will be turned off.
Reminder: High lake waters bring more than just water. If you are out on the lake, remember to be extra cautious of debris that may be in the water and hidden due to the muddy conditions.
Check on your docked boats. If the lake water is high and there is not enough slack in your line, the line can snap and your boat can float away. However, make sure to not have too much slack to where your boat can end up on top of your dock. If you have canoes, kayaks, paddleboats, etc. on your dock, you may want to consider moving them further away from the shore.
If you are not a full time resident, consider calling your neighbors to check on your boats.
If this rain keeps up, we may need an ark!
