Default Cypress Lake water level

Quite down from when I last saw it. Does anyone know why it was drained so low? Perhaps as a pre-emptive measure to control any flooding?



It must have drained quite quickly. The mud shores were scattered with these little guys:

Wow! I have never seen it that low. It would not be for flood control as it is such a small watershed there and 90% of the snow is gone. Can't figure that out. It was right up last week.

Neat pictures of the fish -- too bad. I was over that way late last week for meetings. I took a late night hike up that way, but only got to the first lookout on my way up.

I'm thinking frog or salamander egg mass. Which kind is anybody's guess.

Those are amphibian eggs, and they'll most likely all be dead soon.[V]

Throw them back in the water...quick! You're right in suggesting they drained a lot of reservoirs because they did to prepare for the spring thaw. Ross Lake all but disappeared[:0]...but then it does every spring.

I finally got up there this week and saw the low levels of the lake. The answer is,,, VANDALS. The cover for the level control valves had been broken into and the valves all opened allowing the lake to run to it.s lowest possible level.If there was a tool to turn the valves then they threw that away. $x$ people. A shame as there won't be enough water till next spring to refill the lake.
Anybody got any connections with GVRD to see if they can repair and reset the valves?
