November 27, 2023 - Lowering of the Lake

Every two years, the LAPOA asks LAWCID to open the weir gate and lower the lake by about 4 feet. This allows property owners to do scheduled maintenance of water structures such as docks and bulkheads, and do any brush or weed clearing adjacent to their property. The lake is kept lowered for approximately 5-6 weeks. The weir gate is then closed and the lake will fill back up over the next several weeks. Fill-rate is dependent largely on spring flow-rate and rainfall totals.

January 8, 2024 - Raising of the Lake (approx.)

Approximately 5-6 weeks following the lowering of the lake, the weir gate is closed and the lake will raise at a normal rate. Gate may be closed a few days early if a large rainfall is anticipated which will speed the raising of the lake.
