Canyon Lake Will Be Drawn Down


Boaters, campers and passengers of the Dolly Steamboat will face restrictions this fall and winter when Canyon Lake becomes the second Salt River reservoir in two years to be drawn down for scheduled maintenance work at Mormon Flat and Horse Mesa dams.

The scheduled maintenance will result in lower levels at Canyon Lake from Sept. 29 until about Jan. 26. Canyon Lake will be gradually lowered to approximately 50 feet below the normal lake levels through normal water order, during the four-month draw down. Last fall, Apache Lake was lowered about 50 feet during a similar draw down for maintenance work at Horse Mesa Dam.
