RPG would like to remind property owners with low lying areas to consider protecting those areas from any possible high water conditions during the Freshet.

Golden Lake:

Levels are declining.  Any rain will effect this.

Last of the logs were removed Dec. 5, 2016.  The dam is currently empty of stop logs.  Levels increased with warm weather system the start of March.  The Golden lake outlet has a natural restriction which has a direct effect on how efficiently the lake/system drains.

Golden Lake levels have exceeded the L of Occ. and Upper Limit set at the same level in the BRWMP as of April 8,2017.

Lake Clear:

Last of the logs were removed from the dam on Oct. 11,2016. The dam is currently empty of stop logs.  The outlet is plagued with restrictions between the RPG dam (mostly Beaver activity) and the outlet of the lake.  This has a direct effect on how efficiently the lake drains.

April 13- RPG  set-up for a Drone to fly the outlet of Lake Clear to  identify any obstructions.  No obstructions were found.

April 17 – April 23(week 16)- rise 9cm
