Lake Montclair Lowering

Lake Montclair will be lowered by as much as 3 ft. starting on Friday, January 17, 2020 to safely install the back-up sluice gate. The installation is expected to take four days, with a target completion date of Friday, January 24, 2020. Lakefront property owners are encouraged to take any necessary actions to protect their property while these repairs take place. This includes, but is not limited to, adjusting pontoon retaining lines and properly securing or removing boats, canoes or kayaks. After the required work is completed, the sluice gates will be closed and the water will naturally return to its regular level. Precipitation and the flow of Powell’s Creek will determin...

Due to forecasted precipitation this week and short notification received from the contractor, the installation of the back-up sluice gate has been postponed until Tuesday, January 21, 2020 (weather permitting). Therefore, the lake lowering process has been halted and the level will not be additionally lowered as previously announced.

For those who may not be aware, the work commencing on January 21st is for the installation of a backup sluice gate. This project was approved by the Board of Directors at the September 2019 meeting. However, a delay in the receipt of necessary parts prevented the job from moving forward during the December lowering of the lake. 

On Monday, January 6, 2020, the water level of Lake Montclair will be lowered by no more than 3 ft. for continued repairs to the back-up sluice gate on the dam. The repairs are schedule to begin on January 7, 2020 pending any delays or weather constraints.

Christmas Trees, Decorations & Lights

Enjoy the Holidays with Safety in Mind
