Lake White Level Management
Geotechnical Soil Borings

With rain in the forecast for the weekend, The Division of Parks and Watercraft will be leaning forward in lake level management by lowering the spillway gates and additional 4 to 5 inches.  Currently, the gates are 8 inches below summer pool elevation.

As those of you in the area are probably already aware, the contractor has mobilized a barge-based drilling rig to take geotechnical soil borings in order to obtain soil information along the shoreline portion of the dam.  These borings are expected to take 3-5 weeks.  Be aware that additional soil borings will be obtained by accessing the area from SR 104.  These borings will also be performed in November and December.
