DEEP: Beseck Lake Boat Launch

Beseck Lake Boat Launch

A 6 foot drawdown will commence by November 1, 2017 and be maintained at that elevation until December 31, 2017. A 3 foot water level drawdown will be maintained from January 1, 2018 through March 1, 2018; During this time, the boat launch area may be shallow. The lake is scheduled to be refilled by April 2, 2018. However, there is always a risk that refilling may not be achieved by the target date due to unusually dry weather conditions.
