A 3 ft. drawdown will commence on or about November 1, 2022. The drawdown will be managed to restore the normal water surface elevation by early April 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.
