Well if you have turned on the news or walked outside in the last 6 months you know there has not been much rain. Over the last couple months we have been in close contact with lake officials monitoring lake levels and their directives for the up coming year. Unfortunately, even with the last couple of storms the drought is still a massive reality for California. The lake levels were at such a low level none of the boat ramps are operable as well as creating a great deal of concern for general swim course routes. For perspective Black Butte Lake is one of the shallowest lakes in the area, which has its benefits but in our case it has its downfalls. The recent storms have filled the lake close to operational use from its' lowest points in some time. However, moving into the next couple of months the Army Corps has been told that they will have to move their release objectives that it will be impossible for us to gauge the impact for our event.
