We are asking that residents take no more than 100 sand bags at a time.

The lake levels are higher than they have been in years and historically we have seen that the levels continue to rise until early July.  When we have had onshore winds and waves we have started to see the lake come up over the seawalls and flood residential yards.  In a few locations the lake water has actually made it to Jefferson.  We are also finding the lake levels are coming up through our storm sewer catch basins at a number of locations.
