Lake Level on the Rise!
The YLPA's Michael Smithem closed the valve at the bottom of the Dam and put in boards on March 11. The lake will begin to return to its normal level with the coming rains. Thanks, Mike for managing the spillway so expertly!
Lowering the lake water level in the off season has many advantages including; allowing property owners and beach communities to make shoreline improvements; allows for additional inspection of the dam; takes the water pressure force off of the dam; helps keep the lake weeds down in the summer time and provides additional water storage capacity within the lake should there be severe precipitation events. Your YLPA continuously monitors the lake level and makes adjustments as necessary.
