Lowering of the Lake

A successful boating season is drawing to a close. It is that time of year again for the lake to go down.

Starting on Oct 3rd, the level will decrease slowly over a two week period with the gates fully open and water at winter depth by October 14th.

SAVE THE DATE: Please mark your calendars to attend our Annual All-Members meeting, November 3, 7:00 p.m. at Fairview City Hall. It is time to review the health of the lake, approve next year’s budget, select new board members and hear an update on Lakeshore Park and Levee Ready Columbia.
