Fall drawdown begins

The lake is up to its summer level at this time, however, aquifers are probably not. The Lake Boon Commission has deliberated and determined a 9″ drawdown in this drought year is appropriate. The highway department has removed a board as of this week, to begin lowering the level that amount.
