Posted on 10/18/2018 by Engineering in Lake White Dam
Winter drawdown to begin November 1

ODNR will begin the process of drawing down Lake White to winter pool on November 1. ODNR staff will lower the gates in six-inch increments over the course of the drawdown. The process is expected to take approximately 30 days and will be complete by December 1, depending upon weather, rainfall and other conditions. The lake will be allowed to fill to normal summer pool in Spring, 2019. Daily monitoring continues; on October 17 the lake level was 572.82 feet which was slightly above normal summer pool elevation of 572.74 feet.
