The much anticipated work on Charmaine Dam has once again been postponed until the beginning of next week due to availability of workers and equipment.
In the interim, the valve will be open enough to keep the lake level where it is now. If the valve were closed completely, the level would rise due to the water coming in from Galahad and Tristan.
When the work begins, the valve will be closed in order for the cleaning of the stilling basin to be done.
In order to keep the water from going over the spillway while this work is done, we must start with the lake approximately 11 inches down.
There is no intention of closing the lake to boat traffic.
