Lake Lowering & Dam Inspection Rescheduled

Dear Owners and Residents:

The Dam Inspection has been rescheduled from July 8th to July 9th. The date for the lake lowering changes as follows:

On Tuesday, July 7th beginning at 8:00 AM, the water level of Lake Montclair will be lowered by no more than 12 inches to facilitate a routine inspection of the dam that will take place on Thursday, July 9th. This schedule may be affected by inclement weather, but any changes or postponements will be announced as soon as possible.

Lakefront property owners are encouraged to take any necessary actions to protect their property while this lake lowering takes place. This includes, but is not limited to, adjusting pontoon retaining lines and properly securing or removing boats, canoes, or kayaks.

After the required inspection 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.

Beer on the Beach is scheduled for this evening Friday, June 26th from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm.
