Lake Monacan @ Stoney Creek
This is a photo taken about a week earlier on October 21st. Look at how much of the pier was showing below in this picture as compared to the one above.
We told you about the situation a few days ago here.
Here’s what Henri wrote us:
Wow! What a difference a week makes!
Here a is photo from Sun 21 Oct when we were at Lake Monocan, then the same a week later Sun 28 Oct.
At that time the lake was 1 foot from the spillway, then on Monday noon it was at 8 inches.
Normally it would likely spill this evening, but since neither lake is full, water will be diverted upstream tonight to refill the Tuckahoe lake.
Lake Monacan is important for a variety of reasons, but a big one is that it’s used for pulling water to the top of the mountain to make snow during ski season. Though not back to it’s previous levels, this is a drastic improvement.
Thanks for the updated pics Henri!
