Portage And Baseline Lake Levels To Be Raised Beginning April 5, 2018

The lake level at Portage and Baseline Lakes will be raised beginning April 5, 2018 and will continue gradually until it reaches its normal legal level of 851.54, estimated to be around April 19th (conditions permitting), according to Evan Pratt, Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner.

Each winter the lake level is lowered for shoreline protection.

Homeowners in the Portage and Baseline Lake areas are cautioned to prepare for the raising of the lake level, which is coordinated with opening of the MDNR boat launch facilities. Scott Miller, P.E., Deputy Water Resources Commissioner, will answer inquiries and can be reached at (734) 222-6860.
