Yep....And will draw the lake down to about Hernando's Hideaway....My understanding is, it will be open for tubers, yaker's, and shore fishing.

ps...In the history of San Diego (To my knowledge), there's never been a dam breech...Now, it seems every dam is about to break on the next earthquake

When they fail I'll be there to rescue everyone in the boat, 500$ per person

It's sad to say they new of this problem along time ago. The article was written 7 yes ago...... they should have never let them build the transfer station.... it's to blame for the problem that now exists.. if not made it worst..... if was to breach and break. The lost of life down stream would be terrible.....

Yesterday will probably be the last time I'll get to put my boat on the lake in my life time.... they already dropped the lake 2' and rate of about 1-2' a day.. 30' in the next 4-6 weeks.

Yep...Went to the lake myself yesterday...Unbelievable how fast they can drop the water... :(

How about this....If they close Hodges and then open Olivenhain Reservoir?... :idea:

The city doesn’t believe this, El Cap , Sutherland, Morena, Wohlford, Sweetwater, probably Otay and the Rumor is SV is leaking, none of these has been allowed to fill at least 1/2 full. MO

San V was way more than 1/2 full just last year...It's now getting close to the size before the 100' they added to the dam.

It's official Lake Hodges closing in about 2 weeks. It was on the news last night. Going to lower Lake 18' plus. They say it will take about 5 month to repair. I guess will wait and see.. And there will be no access to Lake for fishing or any water activity.... during construction. Trails will still me open...
