ABOUT THE LAKE DRAWDOWN:

The Board is considering two plans to address the spread of Aquatic Invasive Species and the continuing silt build-up in the lake causing the expansion of shallow bottom areas. This page will provide information about those plans.

One of these plans will be voted into action by the entire District Electorate at our Annual Meeting on July 17, 2021. At this time, due to COVID-19 virus, there will be a special District Meeting around May, 2021, to present or discuss the details of those plans. Most current information has been posted on this page, and we will provide further information to explain more about the draw down concept. Please read them. There is always a possibility of a "on-line webinar meeting" that may be held to discuss this information live, but no plans are in effect yet. Keep consulting this website page for further updates.
