Lake Water Level – A History

As you make your plans for your lake shore and your recreation on our waters, the lake has an ever changing personality. Pot hole glacial lakes are prone to vast variations in water level.

DENR has maintained records of these levels since 1982. This is the graph of their observations.

Please keep these variations in mind when planning your land projects. Your shoreline looks vastly different with 10+ feet change in water level.

As soon as the ice is off the lake we will continue or weekly reports on the lake levels – right here at lakepoinsett.org
