Fixing It

The pond level has been lowered to minimum level (about 2' below normal) this year to permit shoreline, dock, and dam maintenance. Draw down began September 15th with an effort to reach minimum level by October 15th. Some shoreline repair that requires permits may keep the level lower longer than is usually done.
