Lake Drawdown Schedule

January 4, 2020

The Town of Lake Lure began lowering the lake on 1/4/21 as planned. Please take a moment to view these brief videos, intended to keep our community informed about the lake drawdown and the projects completed during this time.

The lake will be lowered one (1) foot per day and will ultimately be lowered to twelve (12) feet below full pond (990.5 feet above mean sea level (MSL).) The lake is expected to be (12) feet below pond (990.5 MSL) from 1/13/21 until 1/20/21. On 1/20/21 the Town plans to begin refilling the Lake.
The current plan is to have the Lake back at full pond by 1/31/21, depending on weather and other factors. Updates will be posted here if there are any changes.
Thank you for your patience and support as we complete these critical projects during this brief lake drawdown.
