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
