                                    ---   Lake Level is High ---

The Bio Station has recorded lake levels since 1922. It is currently measured in feet above sea level.  Bob Vande Kopple, resident biologist UofM Bio Station, is the most recent person to record these readings.  He posted on Facebook, “Just a little warning--the lake is already over 714 feet (because of all that rain). If there is anything you have to do to protect your property before springtime, now would be the time.”  The following shows the highest readings so far:    
714.94 Apr  1985 (highest)
714.66 May 1996
714.58 Apr  2004
714.58 May 1985
Bob says that the average lake level height for November is 712.39 feet above sea level.   He measured 7.9” of rain in October, and 4.05” in November as of 11/22, and said, “It is the watershed that makes the difference in cases like this.”

DL Boat Ramp
Due to lots of rain, improvements were not made to the Douglas Lake boat ramp by Ginop Construction as planned on October 22.  The maintenance was scheduled as quickly as possible after receiving approvals, but the rain began and continued.  The maintenance can be done when water levels drop in the summer. Come Spring, if there is ice push, the Cheboygan County Road Commission feels they can help with that kind of maintenance.
