Dont know what to say about this. I hope/suspect this is an error on the recording equipment as this appears to be a huge amount to drop in 48 hours. Here is the graph that shows the drop: As you can see the drop is well out with the normal data sets. The lake level has went from 1076.78 feet above sea level on Thursday 21st to 1068.75 feet above sea level on Saturday 23rd. That's a drop of 8.03 feet over 2 days. Surely that can't be right. Opinions/ideas anyone ?
