U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to lower lake level at John Redmond Reservoir

Published Jan. 4, 2011

TULSA — The lake level at John Redmond Reservoir in Kansas will be lowered approximately two feet below normal conservation pool level to help facilitate the recovery efforts from a drowning that occurred Dec.4, 2010.

Current releases are 5,000 cubic feet per second and the drawdown is expected to be completed by late tomorrow or early Thursday.

Increased flows downstream of the dam will cause river levels to rise quickly.

Recreational users should also be aware because lower than normal lake elevations may expose boating hazards around the lake that may have been submerged with normal water elevations and boaters are urged to use caution while boating and launching boats.

For more information about current lake levels, visit the Water Control Data System or the daily report link under the Lakes and River Information section of the Tulsa District Homepage, www.swt.usace.army.mil.
