Monterey County Water Level Info and what certain water levels mean

  • 687.5 Elevation - Minimum Pool.
  • 670 Elevation - Dead Pool. This means that no one can take water from Naci. The only launch ramp will be at the main marina. The only area to ski will be between the marina and the dam. Water will stop at Bee Rock Community.
  • 732 Elevation - Oak Shores looses its launch ramps and starts using its auxiliary ramp. The 5 mile per hour buoy is moved to Oak Shores from Christmas Cove
  • Monterey expects the lake to be at Minimum Pool by Labor Day
  • Currently (5/30/2013) Monterey is replacing some bad valves the power plant at the bottom of our dam. This is the reason they have been dumping from Lake San Antonio. On June 15th they say the valves should be replaced and they can start dumping.
  • Oak Shores will have 20 days before they loose their east and west launch ramps
  • Heritage Ranch will have 20 day before they loose their ramp

Webcam 3 is on its way

  • Webcam #3 is ordered and on its way. You can see a sneak preview of how the camera will be looking at the main marina and main launch ramp.
  • We should be up and running in the next 2-3 weeks.

Weather

  • It is interesting that the weather affects the number of visitors to the site. We expect that. During the summer people check the webcams during the week to see what the lake looks like before them come up. Others check the lake during the weekend to see if a day trip is worth coming.
