The reservoir will be down around 8’ below the high water mark during this project. Work is scheduled to begin on October 31st and will take several weeks to complete. Boaters should be aware that boat ramp access may be affected during this drawdown. Once the work is completed, Winchester Lake will be allowed to refill naturally through the winter and spring.
