LAKE CHARMAINE CLOSED TO BOAT TRAFFIC
As of June 1, 2011, Charmaine Lake is closed to all boat traffic due to low lake levels. We managed to get through the Memorial Day weekend without closing the lake but levels this morning were at the critical stage. The reason the lake closing is necessary is to prevent wash out from boat waves below the apron on the dam. Have you heard the old saying "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure"? To leave the lakes open would cause costly repairs in the future. We will open the lake back up as soon as we get some rain and the levels rise. PRAY for rain. PLEASE remember we are under a burn ban.
