The city of Dover, with a recommendation from the Silver Lake Commission, will perform a drawdown of Silver Lake on Oct. 9-20.

This is a scheduled drawdown, and the city wants to make residents aware as not to cause

alarm should they notice the lake water level changing. This will be an opportunity for

lakeside residents to clean up debris and other items on their property. A contractor will

be on-site for Silver Lake dam maintenance work, which includes the boat ramp area.

Licensed boaters should be on notice the boat ramp will be temporarily closed during

this period.

Efforts will be put forth to ensure the fish and other water species are not harmed in any manner during this short drawdown period.
