Lake Drawdown - Not for 2019/2020
« Reply #1 on: August 16, 2019, 04:41:15 pm »
A reminder that this would NOT occur this fall prompted a good question from a new owner as to why not just do it every year?  The standard answers from the past are repeated below:

1.   We need a DEP permit; no big deal but can't occur over night.
2.   We have 1000+ boats to get out of the water; it drives the Marina nuts
3.   Some experts believe lowering every year, or even every-other year, harms the Lake.
4.   There is no easy way to regulate level once we go lower than the spillway.  It can be painstaking.
5.   Lack of spillway regulation means we cannot rely on safe ice for ice-fishing, snowmobiles, etc.

Hopefully some combination of the above strikes a chord
