Lake Update

On April 23rd, the MPOA Management Staff notified the Montclair Community of the need to lower the lake in order to repair the damaged trash racks located within the primary spillway riser. The trash racks are used to prevent debris from entering the riser and potentially clogging the spillway. These trash racks were likely damaged by a large piece of debris hitting the racks when the spillway was operating at maximum capacity. The trash racks were repaired last year when the lake was lowered for the spillway project, but because the trash racks failed, it appears that the work was done incorrectly. On April 26th, the sluice gate was scheduled to be opened and the lake lowered to 12 inches b

Earth Day and Fishing Tournament – Updates and Requests

Thank you to everyone who volunteered and participated for Earth Day and the Fishing Tournament on April 20th! There were roughly 20 more volunteers for this year than last year, and a total of 20 trash bags and 5 recycling bags collected – not to mention over 50 bags worth of invasive plants!

Upcoming Lake Lowering

Recently, the trash racks located within the spillway riser were damaged. New racks have been constructed and are scheduled to be installed Saturday, April 27th. The installation process will require the lake to be lowered approximately 12 inches below normal pool. The lake will be allowed to rise to normal pool once the necessary repairs are completed. The repairs are expected to be completed Saturday evening, pending no unforeseeable issues during installation. These racks are one of several safety measures that are in place on the dam, therefore it is necessary to make these repairs right away. The sluice gate will be opened Friday afternoon, April 26th, and closed Saturday morning, April

IMMEDIATE LAKE LOWERING

Considering the current forecast from the Nation Weather Service issuing a Flash Flood Watch and Severe Weather Alert for the immediate area, MPOA has taken preemptive actions to mitigate risks and prepare for potentially hazardous conditions, especially those contributing to storm surges, by lowering the lake to the level as directed by the MPOA Board President (up to 3’). The sluice gate may remain open during the storm to allow additional rainfall to flow through the dam. MPOA assures continuous site access and has procedures that provide surveillance and monitoring to enable timely response. Access to the site in all weather conditions has been preplanned by the staff gauge observer and
