Camp Notes: 2009 Water Level

Lake level in the rain
From The Commentariat:
"Since all the rain has the water level really risen in the lake?

How about a photo of the channel to Mitchell, and the island?"

Yes, the two days of rain did noticeably raise the water level in the lake.

the water level is now 17" as measured at the end of the dock on May 26, 2009. This is not directly comparable to the 15.5" previously reported, as a measuring methodology had not been adopted for the earlier depth. However, I would estimate that the level is up a little over an inch.

For purposes of comparison to future 2009 season water level measurements. The correct methodology for determining the water level is to rest the SSMR (Standard Shag Measuring Ruler) on the edge of the base of the left post supporting the end of the dock.

shocking clarity on that underwater pic, considering the bottom where it was taken.

Indeed. There is greater visibility in Shag now then what I usually get in our Pacific ocean cove diving for abalone.
