Lake and River Level Update 21 August at 3 PM.

Lake level was 495.41 ft and falling
Discharge was 100 cfs
Rough River at Dundee was 4.50 ft

BEACHES: The beaches managed by the Corps of Engineers are open (North Fork, Axtel, and Laurel Branch).

The notice about a beach closure at Rough River Lake had to do with the Rough River State Park Beach. The Rough River State Park beach is closed due to ecoli levels being high (these levels are in all liklyhood high due to the goose population on this beach).

People have asked why are the Corps of Engineers beaches not impacted and the State Park beach is? The Corps of... Engineers beaches do not have a concentration of geese around them and on them.

Please if you see anyone feeding the geese at or near the beaches ask them to stop and if they don't please report it to a Ranger.
