DOVER — The city of Dover, with a recommendation from its Silver Lake Commission, will be performing a drawdown of Silver Lake beginning Monday, Oct. 9, and lasting through Friday, Oct. 20.
The city said all efforts will be put forth to ensure the fish and other water species are not harmed in any manner during the short drawdown period.
It is a scheduled drawdown of the lake, and the city wants to make residents aware of the upcoming event so it does not cause alarm should they notice the lake water level changing.
This will be an opportunity for lakeside residents to clean up debris and other items on their property.
The drawdown is weather dependent. If there are periods of precipitation during the time of the drawdown, it is likely the water level will not have notable change.
The Silver Lake Commission is committed to improving Silver Lake Park and lake waterways. The drawdown is just one of many steps that are taken throughout the year to support that commitment.
