Cane River Lake Update – March 20, 2016

The lake is currently at 101.2 MSL. ( 3.2 feet above pool stage ) and falling. The Spillway gates are expected to open Monday March 21 or Tuesday March 22. It will be vital that property owners monitor their property closely and adjust boats in boat houses, tied to outside of boathouses, and to trees or other objects on their properties to make sure they are not left dry docked, or stranded on docks, piers, and retaining walls as the water level will drop faster once the spillway gates open.

Absolutely no boats are allowed on the waterway at this time as any boat wake will cause further damage to property. For this reason we will not start the clean up process until the lake falls below 100.0 MSL to minimize damage to property owners. Reopening of the lake will be a lengthily process, your cooperation and patience will be greatly appreciated.
