Lake Area Residents:

After a beautiful summer, it is now approaching the time that the annual draw down of the lake begins.  The timing of the draw down is mandated by a permit received from the Hopkinton Conservation Commission and must begin no earlier than September 15th and no later than October 1st.  The exact date can vary from year to year based upon the level of the lake coming out of the summer.  The formal draw down has not yet commenced because of the drought conditions that we have experienced this summer. The reduction of the lake level now occurring is from natural evaporation.  The formal draw down will not begin prior to October 1st unless we receive significant precipitation in the next week or so.  The exact date that the draw down will commence has not been set, but please understand that it could start any time between now and October 1st.  This year’s reduction in the level of the lake is anticipated to be 48-52 inches.

Please be aware of the draw down process and arrange for the removal of boats and docks accordingly.

Have a great autumn,

 

The Officers and Executive Board
