February 2017 Lake Levels and Flow Rates

A model February operational chart (see how closely it follows the 5 year moving average - in orange).  There's no guarantee lake levels won't dip lower over the next few weeks, but it appears we reached a winter drawdown low of 653.92ft on February 26th, about 10 days sooner than the average but just a couple of days sooner than my February 28th prediction. Not bad!

Flow rates were quite average as well and the lake should start rising slowly from current levels to about 656 by the end of March. If you're going to get any work done on the shoreline, time's awasting.
