Gardner Lake Boat Launch
A 3 ft. drawdown has been approved for this waterbody during the 2022/2023 winter season.
The drawdown will commence on or about October 15, 2022. During the first two weeks, the drawdown will not exceed 1 ft. to allow for access to the boat launch ramp.
On or about November 1, 2022, the drawdown will be increased. By December 1, 2022, the 3ft. drawdown should be achieved. The normal water surface elevation should be restored by April 1, 2023.
Please note: With any drawdown and refill periods, there are risks that the desired level and refill may not be achieved within the timeframes due to weather events and conditions.
