Low Water Impacts Many

How Much Lower Will It Go

At the July Board meeting Doug McGowan commented he has been on the lake for 20 years and replaced his dock in 2009.  He has had adequate water until last summer, which was the first time it was a challenge.  He warned that to take the lake down further would be disastrous.  The picture shows that at the target lake level of 8.8’ there is less than 6” of water at the transom of his boat.  The boat no longer floats and cannot be driven away from the dock.  Doug must wait for the lake to rise just to remove his boat from the lake.  There are multiple stories such as this on the lake this year.
