Annual Draw Down of the Lake

Lake Area Res­i­dents:

After a beau­ti­ful sum­mer, it is now approach­ing the time that the annu­al draw­down of the lake begins.  The tim­ing of the draw­down 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 exact date that the draw­down 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 draw­down process and arrange for the removal of boats and docks accord­ing­ly.



Have a great autumn,


The Offi­cers and Exec­u­tive Board
