To allow for shoreline maintenance, a temporary, nonemergency 5 foot drawdown of Claytor Lake has been proposed for Saturday, Nov. 6 through Sunday, Nov 14. According to the plan submitted to FERC, the lake will be drawn down starting Wed Nov 3 at 1.6 ft a day until it reaches 5 feet down by 9 a.m. Sat Nov 6. It is to remain at 5 feet down until 10 p.m. Sun Nov 14 when the lake will be allowed to start refilling. Targeted return to normal elevation is 10 p.m. Friday, Nov 19, depending on inflow.
