Lake Water Management

UPDATE Mar 13th, 2024

Our Lake (A Pond actually) is now full!!!!

The LOTW Board oversees the two people currently managing the height of the overall lake, by making necessary adjustments in the Water Control Station. Here is a picture taken 03/05/2024 of that adjustment in process.

The clever guillotine lifting gate valve, is the way we control the outflow. By turning the wheel, the plate that stops water from going through the pipe carrying the water away, is a 28″ culvert, so if needed, a huge amount of water can be moved quickly. Keep in mind however, Mother Nature always wins!

If you have questions about the lake, the water control process, or want to know more about Lake drainage, send an email to Karen at [email protected]. She will get it to a person that can find out more information for you.
