High Rock residents need to begin preparations to
protect their boats and personal watercraft that stay in the water year round or
on floating boat lifts. APGI recently announced
a planned drawdown of High Rock Lake
beginning September 15th that will leave most boats sitting on the ground. The drawdown of 14 feet is being done to allow
NCDOT to examing the causway at State Route No. 2140 (St. Matthews Church Road ) and to develop a repair and manitenance plan.
This will also provide an opportunity for repair and maintenance of private piers and other permitted facilities; excavation to
maintain or create recreational boat access; and shoreline cleanup.
High Rock Lake will be gradually lowered over a six week period beginning September 15th. It
will remain 14 feet below full from November 1st thru November 5th and then they will begin
refilling the lake once the NCDOT examination work is complete. The exact draw down schedule may vary due to
rainfall and river flow. You can read the notification being sent to property
