The lake level is on the rise and it won't be long before there is boating activity on the Apple Valley Lake.  The dam has already been closed for the season in order for the lake level to reach what is known as "full pool" for the upcoming boating season.  Water levels increase each year based on the amount of spring rain we receive.

Before each winter Apple Valley opens the valve on the dam to lower the water level of the lake.  By lowering the water level it enables property owners to more easily perform boat dock and sea wall maintenance.  Lowering the water levels also eliminates ice damage due to the freezing of the lake.
