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 has just announced a planned drawdown of High Rock Lake that is beginning NEXT WEEK that could leave many boats sitting on the ground. The drawdown (7 to 10 feet) is necessary for Alcoa Power Generating Inc. (APGI) to stabilize a section of eroding shoreline next to High Rock Dam. High Rock Lake will be gradually lowered over the next four weeks. It will remain 7-10 feet below full until late November, when they will begin refilling the lake. Their goal is to refill the lake as quickly as possible once the repair work is completed. The exact draw down schedule may vary due to rainfall and river flow.
