Warning about Spillway Riser

Jumping off the Spillway Riser platform within the debris boom area is prohibited and may result in serious injury or death. The Spillway Riser has inlets on three sides of the riser that are located just below the surface. There is a constant flow of water into the inlets and the system is designed to keep the lake at normal pool. The suction force can range from minimal to perilous, making escape impossible, even for the strongest of swimmers. The strong suction force is evident by the bowing of the debris boom when the siphon has been activated. People may underestimate this danger because no apparent suction is presently observed. This is an extremely dangerous area due to life-threatening suction forces that may be encountered if the primary spillway siphon activates. Entering the area within the debris boom while the siphon is activated, can cause death from the victim being trapped against the trash racks and drowning. As beach season approaches, please talk to your family members about the dangers of playing around or jumping off the Spillway Riser.

Social Distancing

In response to COVID-19, experts are urging people to practice “social distancing,” which is the idea of maintaining a roughly 6-foot distance between other people. It also means limiting non-essential travel, avoiding public transportation when possible, working from home, and skipping social gatherings. In response, we’ve included helpful reminders, information and changes below.
