Re: Low Water

Water levels are down roughly 15 inches since July 20th and continue to drop. I had 8’ in my slip in June and it was less than 6.9’ three weeks ago (I need 5’6”). The yacht club is planning to do involuntary relocation of boats between slips to ensure deep-draft boats will have a chance to float next season. Roughly 60% of the main channel that services SSYC and the public mooring fields north & south of the YC is so shallow the lake birds are walking on the sandy bottom.

We need cold & snow this winter and we’re not off to a good start.
