John W. Flannagan Lake Boat Ramps Closing Nov. 10

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will close all boat ramps at John W. Flannagan Dam and Reservoir Nov. 10, 2011, including the launch ramp at the marina. The lake is being lowered to allow for maintenance work, which will make all ramps inaccessible.

Once every 10 years the lake is drawn down an extra 30 feet below Winter Pool to allow Corps employees to access and inspect features of the dam.

Depending on weather conditions, the marina launch ramp is expected to be inaccessible through February 1, 2011. A notice will be sent out when the ramp reopens.

For more information call the John W. Flannagan Dam and Reservoir project office at 276-835-9544.
