Finally, some good news about the lake!
Officials at the city’s Water Treatment Plant declared “ice out” on Clear Lake Sunday, April 14. And with the ice out comes the first reading of the lake level.
Tuesday, April 15, the lake level was reported as 17.04 inches below the weir. The new mark represents a gain of 14.4 inches since the time the lake was declared iced-in on Dec. 11, 2012.
Although late, the mid-April ice-out date was not a record-setter. The latest ice out date on record is April 28, 1951.
