Lake Level Update - Memorial Day 5/30/2022

Lake Level Update:

Hi everyone.  It's good to see the various brooks and streams that feed the lake flowing nicely again, a sign that the winter snowpack and spring rains appear to be back to normal.  Last year at this time, those brooks and streams were pretty much dry, running at a trickle, and the level was at about 317'. 

I had a chance to measure the lake level using the geodetic marker at the Bowerbank boat launch in Newell cove yesterday, and the lake level is right at 323 feet above sea level, a few inches above the 'summertime' upper range of 322.8'. 

Have a great summer and hope to see you at our annual meeting, Saturday July 9, 09:30 at the Foxcroft Academy in the football stand under the broadcast booth. 

Rudy Davis, President, SLA.

Check out the new edition of The Lake Book

You may already be familiar with The Lake Book. A publication that first circulated in the lakes community in the 1980s, The Lake Book was packed with information about lakes and the impacts people have on lake ecology and health. Forty years later, The Lake Book is now in its fourth edition, with a smaller wire-bound format, stunning graphics, colorful photos, and up to date information about lake science, lake wildlife, native plants, best management practices for erosion control, and a list of achievable actions you can take to improve your lake.
