Record high water level forecast for spring
The weather and the lake level remain in the headlines. On December 8, the water level of Douglas Lake was 714.34 feet above sea level which is up from October. The lake is covered with ice, and is about 5â€ thick by the Biological Station. The scenery is beautiful, but with all factors considered, we are looking at a new record high water level for spring 2015. Consider in advance what measures you need to take to protect your investment.
For gift giving ... think Douglas Lake merchandise
The Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund board of trustees recommended that 69 recreational development projects and land acquisitions totaling $24.7 million be funded in 2015. Links to the 2014 Development and Acquisition Recommendation Projects are below and Douglas Lake is not on either list. An appraisal of the Reinhardt Rd property was requested by the DNR for a proposed boat launch facility. The appraisal has not happened. The DLIA is not aware of any new DNR activity concerning a boat launch facility on the lake.
