Dam still closed at 7am this morning since I drive over the 'wier' bridge on 78...

I'm sure there is an obvious answer, but here goes...Why do they have to open the dam at all, as long as nothing is being flooded (houses roads etc...)? Wouldn't it be smarter to hang on to this water, for when we will need it this summer? Like I said, I'm sure there is a reason, I just don't know it!

there is a level at which stuff does start to flood.  if it gets close to then a chance of a good rain could put more water in thean they can let out and then there is a big mess on their hands.  I would assume they keep a few feet extra and no more, but who knows.

They think their project will complete next year and they can maintain a constant level, so I doubt they are worried anymore.  

We got more rain this spring than anyone thought.

Joe is right as I understand the priorities of the Lake:

1st Priority--Flood Control

2nd Priority--Water Supply

3rd Priority--Recreation

Just drove down to the dam.. 4 gates are open.. snakes everywhere.. also..be sure to watch for ants..and if you have a deterrent to chiggers..wear it!! Everything that has made a home on the dry ground that is now water, will be moving to high ground..Ants will be in balls..you don't want to have one of those on you. Chiggers..well good luck there.. I think there is some stuff called skin so soft that works wonders for them.,.I don't have any..if you are not up on that deck..you should be very careful.. I don't reccommend boats

Wylies dead on with the Ants. The Ants have got me pretty good since the lakes come up. Alot of them are near the waters edge and not all mounds are very big or visible. Plus I usually have my mind on other things. If your banking it and step on something soft... move... and quickly!

yea , i saw the gates are closed again . check out ray hubbards gate action ... 7000 cfm  icon_eek guess they're tryin to make some fast space for lavon when they open em back up . ray hubbards over a foot high right now ... they haveta drop it .

right now i'm hittin the water in a boat while we still can , guess we'll get to worry bout those dadgom antballs if they end up closin down our ramp . it don't look like i'll be back out to the point until it the water lvl drops or it's just to dam hot to hang out in a boat

Why all of a sudden does Lavon have N/A instead of a level? Anybody?

in my amateur humble opinion the lake level rose so fast it busted the lake level measuring gizmo.   icon_rolleyes  plus, its the weekend.  They should have a lake level gizmo tech on call.  by the way, if the Army Corps of Engineers has a legal team, aren't they just a bunch of dam lawyers?
