Summer Operations
Water level is maintained at full pond. Full pond is equal to top 
of spillway at the west side dam.

Seasonal Fall Drawdown
Drawdown begins on or just after Columbus day. This is done by operations 
of gates and stoplogs at the dam.

Spring Refill
The gates are reclosed after the spring runoff season to refill the river.

Note: Water levels generally fluctuate in response to precipitation,
snowmelt, drought or other meteorological conditions. Target water levels 
are maintained by the adjustment of flows at the dam in response 
to these conditions.
