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.
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.
The repairs are expected to take four days. 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 determine how long it takes for the water levels to return to normal.
