INDIAN LAKE BOATER’S GUIDE
INDIAN LAKE WATER LEVEL – 2020
Below is a graph from the Hudson River Black River Regulating District that shows the target water levels agreed on between the Indian Lake Association and HRBRRD for the lake in effect prior to 2016 (dotted line), the new target levels effective in 2016 (small x’s) and the historic average water levels (thin solid line). Added to the graph are the actual levels from USGS data (heavy solid line). The combination of the large drainage area and the relatively small outlets on the dam mean that a large rain event or rapid snow melt can make the lake rise significantly even with the gates fully open.
