Delavan Lake Temporarily Closed – Now Open with Restrictions

July 17, 2017 – Monday

3:30 P.M. – The lake/boat launches are open, there is still a SLOW NO WAKE RESTRICTION.

Beginning tomorrow July 18th normal lake operations to resume

9:00 A.M. – The lake level is down about 10-12 inches but still not safe for boating.  The NO WAKE RESTRICTION is still in effect!!

July 14, 2017

The lake receded 2.5 inches in the last 24 hours.  Lake will more than likely not reopen until Monday.  Keep coming back to look for updates.

July 13, 2017

Due to the recent storm all public boat launches are closed.  Due to the high waters their are floating piers pieces, and other foreign objects that have gotten loose.  There is also a NO WAKE RESTRICTION and we do not recommend boating at this time.

Per Delavan Lake Sanitary Report:  7/13/2017 @ 4:30pm

The lake is up 22 inches and rising, we well surpassed our record high!  The inches is down four inches but the main lake is continuing to risem.  We have a very large watershed and the main lake is till collecting runoff from the surrounding area.  We believe the lake will crest later tonight, about 18  hours after the rainfall.

In an effort to combat the water elevation, the dam has all three gates open all the way.  Our crew has been going in every couple hours and clearing out he dam of any debris or stray boats.

Due to the high lake elevations there is not wake on the entire lake.  All wee harvesting will be postponed until water levels return to normal and the no wake is lifted.

If you are in an area that is still having severe flooding and threatening your home, please take precautions.  We don’t foresee the lake rising much higher but keep your  eye on the water level.  Sandbags are available at local hardware stores, remove any valuables from potential flooding areas.
