The District will begin lowering Lake Asbury (Big & Lower) Lake water level starting later this afternoon. The lake level will slowly drop 4 to 6 inches. The East Valve will be repaired within two weeks subject to weather.
The project includes a diver inserting a Pig which is a bladder that is kept under a prescribed PSI maintained by a pump to keep the Pig positioned within the East Valve inlet Pipe. Tim’s Valve & Pipe will repair the valve and reinstall.
Please be aware when work is in process. No wake if possible. The repair is conducted approximately 20 feet below the surface inside the kettle. The East Kettle/Valve is located just to the west of Lake Asbury boat ramp.
Regular updates will follow.
