Montclair Community News – January 14, 2020
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 determine how long it takes for the water levels to return to normal.
