The fall Lake Boon drawdown, done each year, will begin on or about October 22, 2021. The lake level will go down slowly over the subsequent few weeks, reaching its base level by late November.
In fact, the lake was already lowered a few inches in August, when the dam weir was repaired and in anticipation of intense rain with hurricanes Henri and Ida. So the drawdown process will continue from the current level to about a foot lower.
Lake residents should take this drawdown into consideration when scheduling removal of boats and/or shoreline repairs or clean-up.
This drawdown is in accord with the Conservation Commission Order of Conditions. For any questions or concerns, contact Dan Barstow (DanBarstow@gmail.com) of the Lake Boon Commission.
