The water levels at the dam are taken weekly and reported to the District so water in Kahshe Lake can be kept at an optimum level. In the summer, the water level drops because of evaporation. The number is meters above sea level.
October 7 242.15. About the same as last week. Happy Thanksgiving, and see you in the spring!!! Sandi
September 31 242.16 - slowly coming up!
September 23 242.15
September 16 242.11, down a bit from last week!!!!
September 9 242.12, so it's back up a bit FINALLY.
September 2 The lake level is 242.09, or 1 notch below the 242.10 level.
Checking the Kahshe Lake Rule Curve that I was given by Steve Taylor in May of 2006, the level should be 242.30. so the lake is WAY BELOW what it should be. We did have 25mm of rain this past Monday/Tuesday, but the ground is so dry that all the water is sinking in rather than creating any run-off back into the lake. -Sandi
