As you all know...what a difference a few days, weeks and 
months have made on the lake level.

As of midday today at the King Street Ferry Dock we were at 
96.02 feet, more than 7 feet below our peak level of 103.20 
feet on May 6th. Our lowest point in 2011 was 95.70 feet on 
March 5th.

Thus we've seen the lake jump 7.5 feet from March 5th to May 
6th then drop 7.18 feet from May 6th to August 3rd...AMAZING!!!

So, looking back at our database (Special thanks to Jason 
Neilson here at NWS BTV), here are our top yearly lake level 
differentials (Low to High)

1)8.21 feetin 1933

2)7.77 feetin 1939

3)7.70 feetin 1913

4)7.66 feetin 1909

5)7.58 feetin 1936

*6)  7.50 feet  in 2011**

In order to add to this figure for 2011, the lake level must 
fall below 95.70 feet.

Historically, the lake level recedes another foot between 
NOW and mid-Autumn, so there's a good possibility as long as 
we don't see above normal rainfall.

Enjoy and any questions on this data, please check with
