The fall Lake Boon drawdown, done each year, will begin on or about October 17, 2022. The level will go down slowly over the subsequent few weeks, reaching its base level by late November, about 1 foot lower than at present.
We’re also keeping a watch on Hurricane Ian, currently approaching Florida. If its path veers north, with significant rain for Stow, we may take out one board earlier, as a precaution.
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.
