April 2018

I have archived the April 2018 Water Level Chart (at left). There is nothing particularly notable about the April chart but it was nice to see the lake rise above -24″ for the last 3rd of the month (the lake is currently about as low as you’ll ever see it once we own the dam). The level lake rose over 18″ as the result of 4.5″ of rainfall despite the gate being wide open. The hole in the dam appears to have been partially blocked by flotsam which impeded the outflow. Precipitation for the year stands at 11.53″ which is only 0.68″ less than average. Perhaps the drought trend that has plagued us for the last couple of years is ending?
