Drawdown of Lakes [Message #1]

Long Lake, Elk Lake, Lake Duroy, and Wilson Flowage are in the Chain of Lakes that are affected by the drawdown as can be easily seen when viewing the lakes.

The drawdown is taking place so that repairs can take place on Jobes Dam starting on Monday, September 18th. Construction should be completed by October.

The drawdown of six feet started on September 5th with a drop in water level of six inches per day to prevent potential fish entrapment. Once construction is finished, which is expected to take about two weeks, the water level will fill back at a rate of six inches per day with the normal pool being re-established by mid-October.

The Department of Natural Resources is reminding residents who are wanting to perform shoreline repairs during the drawdown to acquire proper permits prior to beginning any repairs. For permitting information, please contact Doug Cassina, Water Management Specialist, at 715-634-7463.

Questions or concerns can be shared with Joe Neeb, Dams Keeper, at 715-492-4459 or the Highway Departmentís main office at 715-339-3081.

Remember that, while it is interesting to view part of the lakes' floors, removing anything that is part of the lakes will change the environment for the fish who use these structures as homes or food sources. Please leave the lake as it is during this process.
