Eagle Lake water levels may reach historic low
Sunday, July 5, 2015 — Based on records and data kept by one local resident, Eagle Lake’s water level will drop to a historic low this summer.
Doc Bateson measured the water level at 5,091.83 feet on June 20, which he said is down four inches from three weeks ago in May.
“If it continues at that rate, it will break that all-time record by Aug. 5,” he said.
Bateson, a board certified chiropractic orthopedic specialist, keeps a chart of the lake’s water levels dating back to 1890 on a wall in his practice.
