Raccoon Lake Lowered For Repairs

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

Centralia City Manager Dan Ramey says the level of Raccoon Lake will be kept low the next two weeks.  He reports the lower level is needed to accommodate repairs to the Raccoon Lake dam structure.  

The lake will be kept at 38 to 44 inches in depth, compared to the normal 50 inches.  The lake will be allowed to return to normal levels when the improvements are completed.  Ramey is encouraging individuals to perform repairs to their docks and shore structures during the next two weeks while the later level is down.  

Ramey says the city appreciates the community's patience in making the repairs.
