Hello Everyone, I’m pleased to report that inflow has become more manageable with the water level finally reaching the target. We’re making progress on flashboard maintenance and replacement and the previously estimated lake refill date of 11/16/2022 still appears accurate. Please reach out with any questions and I’ll continue to provide weekly updates at a minimum.
As an update, we continue to await inflow conditions to allow for the full lake level lowering. The lake level is approximately 6 inches high at this time, even with some work progress made by removing all flashboards. We anticipate that the previously communicated schedule (i.e., work completed in the coming weeks with lake refill beginning on or about 11/9/2022) is still accurate.
One important reminder I ask you to distribute to residents ASAP: In the interest of everyone’s safety, please do not pass the posted “construction area” signs to enter active work areas on private property. Please do not approach workers as unanticipated interactions can prove dangerous for those workers and/or the general public with various tasks in progress and tools and equipment in use.
We appreciate everyone’s continued patience and attention to these important matters.
As of this morning, the Lake is about 1 foot above the intended level with all the rain lately. The intended level (i.e., about 4 feet below typical level) should be met in approximately 2 days. As you’re aware, that estimate will ultimately depend on weather conditions.
