The valve to lower the lake level is now open. The water level is much higher this year compared to last year. As you can see in the video, we still have some water flowing over the overflow. Once we opened the valve, the box filled with water well over the discharge pipe. The water is coming in the control box faster than the discharge pipe can take it out. I can not make the lake lower any faster than it will now. The valve is 100% open and will remain that way into March. The lake level is set to drop to a little over 4 feet from the normal pool. If it stays dry for a few weeks, we may reach that level by month’s end. Again, the lake is currently much higher than last year at this time. It will take a bit longer than last year to get to the winter level.
