And so we come to the end of another month. I’ve archived the first chart of 2015 in a new album “2015 Water Level Charts.” Due to heavy rains in December combined with frozen ground, significant runoff brought the lake level up to 24″ below the top of the dam at the start of the month, right where it would be this time of year if the water level order were being followed. The water level has steadily fallen since the 1st of the year and ended the month at 46″ below the top of the dam.
Like last year, I have decided to halt further water level measurements for the month of February. Weather permitting I’ll resume water level measurements on or about March 1st.
