At the Greenwood Lake Commission meeting, held on Wed., Oct. 26, everyone wanted to know if the drawdown would end early due to the dry weather conditions. The drawdown of Greenwood Lake began on Tues., Oct. 11 and is scheduled to end on Wed., Feb. 15. The Commission has the option to close the gates and end the drawdown earlier on Sun., Jan. 1.

The Commissioners and public officials present expressed their concern that residents who intend to do repairs and restoration on docks and bulk heads during the drawdown should do so soon in case of an early closedown.
