Waving Goodbye to Summer on Lake Altoona

Waving Goodbye to Summer on Lake Altoona

The Eau Claire County Parks & Forest Department announces that in accordance with state guidelines, the annual 0.7-foot (8.4 inches) winter draw down of Lake Altoona will begin on Monday morning, November 9, 2020.

The purpose of the draw down is to minimize damage to property from ice shifting and to also create a larger reservoir capacity in anticipation of spring rains and runoff from melting snow.

The boat docks at Lake Altoona County Park will be removed for the season after the winter lake level is reached (the date depends upon weather conditions). Any questions regarding this news release can be directed to the Parks & Forest Department
