Central to Lower Water Level at Jeffrey Lake this Fall

Holdrege, Neb. — (HOLDREGE, Neb.) — The Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District will lower the water level this fall at Jeffrey Lake in preparation for canal structure maintenance downstream.

The drawdown at Jeffrey Lake is scheduled to begin on Sept. 29 to an elevation about nine feet below normal operation levels.  The reservoir south of Brady, Neb., should return to normal elevations around Oct. 8.

While the lake is down, cabin-owners who may wish to perform shoreline maintenance are reminded to contact Central to obtain any necessary permits prior to initiating such projects.

All drawdown plans are subject to change depending on river flows and rain events.
