FirstLight Power sets winter drawdown dates for Candlewood Lake, Squantz Pond

FirstLight Power has set the winter drawdown dates for Candlewood Lake and Squantz Pond.  The drawdown will be after December 1st and run until the opening of fishing season in early April.  A deep drawdown will be necessary this season in order to perform maintenance of the Rocky River Dam.  The normal depth is about 427 to 429-and-a-half feet, but the drawdown will target an elevation of 418 to 420 feet.  Water levels will fluctuate throughout the season and will drop to minimum pond levels to allow repair work on the dam to be completed. FirstLight says due to unknown weather patterns, exact dates and associated lake levels are not available.  Homeowners are strongly encouraged to remove their structures, boat lifts, and docks from Candlewood Lake prior to the winter season to prevent ice damage along the shoreline. All work planned to occur along the shoreline requires prior permitting from FirstLight.
