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 27th. Questions or concerns can be directed to Jill Allen, MPOA General Manager, by phone 703-670-6187 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
