Freedom — May 16, 2008 — On target – with another two weeks to go for June 1st. The Dam Authority has successfully managed what Mother Nature has given us, and the lake level is at 407.25′ above sea level. This is the goal established in the lake operating plan for the summer. The plan is to hold this level until Columbus Day in October.
The black flies are back so it is time to put the docks and boats in. Very little boat traffic so far this year. The loons are back and making a heck of a noise late most nights. I know of only one snow pile yet to melt.
