One thing about all the spring rains that we’ve had, especially all the rains that have happened just this month has caused the water levels at Beaver Lake to rise. Not only do we have comparison photos but I also have comparison numbers. When we conducted our New Year’s Day dive on January 1 the water levels were:
January 1 – 1,113.5 feet
This seemed to be a relatively drier winter, but we’ve sure made up for it this spring with the rains. I’m not complaining because we needed some rain. Month to date has recorded 8.29 inches of rainwater added. When I got to the lake last Tuesday the water levels were:
May 19 – 1,126.46 feet.
It was obvious that water levels were higher because our campsite set up was in the same area that we hold the Pumpkin Carving and the New Year’s Day Dives. Typically the bottom campsite is where we’re set up, then you have to go over the big rocks, down the rock bed and finally into the water.
