    I canít say for sure but I donít think they do. I think they have a spillway that if it reaches a certain level it will spill over but other than that they have 1 pump station that I know they pump water out of the lake into Yegua Creek at. Both are located in the southeast corner of the lake toward Overlook park.

    Supposedly they’re still dropping it 1” a day. But if that were true it woulda been back closer to normal pool by now.
    However... that lake is really nice 12’ high. You dont have to worry about a lot of the sand bars now and the useable lake is much larger for water sports other than fishing. If they’d just drop it about 5’ so you could get on the boat ramps again it’d be perfect in my opinion.

    That is a sharp looking truck! One of the best I've seen.

    New truck pulls great and barely sagged at all. Will need to see how it does when itís full of camping/boating gear, because I might end up adding some Timber Groves airbags to the back for stability and to level it all out.

    This seems backwards, aren't dams supposed to make electricity as they dump water, not use it?? Seems like this was not very well thought out haha.

    1" a day is not much, especially with all the rain we seem to keep getting on a weekly basis. I am not surprised there has not been a significant drop. We need the rain to cool it for the jam!

    Yeah, I just think like a 12" pipe through the base of the dam with a small turbine generator in there wouldn't have been too expensive (maybe, I admittedly know nothing on the topic) and could provide enough power when flowing to run the Lake facilities. Maybe not though, maybe that would have cost like $300,000.00

    Ya I am not a SME on this either

    That might be what this is but with the jet out it looks like a pumping station

    So it's not Moomba/Supra, but we had a chance to surf our local pros' 2019 G23 today. What a great wave, and almost infinitely customizable at the push of a button. Great wave, but not an extra $150k great.

    Then we took them out and showed them what a 2014 Mondo can do! Actually, they killed it on my wave. Better/longer runs than they had on the G. No pics of that though.

    This was the G with zero water ballast, just a couple hundred pounds of lead and 5 adults on board:
