Lake Drawdown Watch 2024


With my newly updated 14 year average (in orange), we can now track the current year's drawdown.

The precipitous drop in mid-January was due to the extreme cold nationally, and Bagnell Dam was producing power (based on flow rates).

As you can see by the multi-year average, we're not at the bottom yet, but things seems to be progressing along as expected. With today's level at 656.3 we have at least another foot to go.

On my Bingo card, I have March 10th, at 10:00am, with a level of 654.57 as the time and level for the lowest point of the year. A point in time I like to think of now as the "Unofficial End of Winter at the Lake"
