USA: Army Corps Delays Burnsville Lake Draw Down
Plans by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to draw down Burnsville Lake two feet below normal winter pool have been delayed because of weather conditions.
The draw down was planned to allow dredging and maintenance on the Riffle Run Boat Launch Ramp behind the dam.
Because of siltation, for the last two years it has not been possible to launch a boat while the lake was at winter pool elevation.
The work will be rescheduled for later this year.
