It’s always sad to see the lake draining to winter levels, but remember how much fun you had on the lake this past summer and that next summer will be here before you know it. Fall is usually a beautiful time of year and is also time for a few important reminders:

  1. Remember to complete any shoreline projects this Fall, as the water can rise quickly in the Spring depending on snowmelt and rain. Plus, our DEC Drawdown Permit requires that we raise the lake back to summer levels as soon as the ice is off the lake in the Spring.
  2. Please do not rake leaves into the lake bed, as rotting leaves will become nutrients for future weed and algae growth. Also, if you can, please rake fallen leaves out of the lake bed.
  3. Please do not throw brush or branches into the lake, as they end up at the dam clogging the sluice gate debris rack and inhibiting control of the water level.
