The outlet tube of the Galway Lake dam will undergo a routine video inspection on July 1, 2013. In order to prepare for this inspection the lake level of Galway Lake is being dropped to 20.6’ in order for the lake level to drop below the dam’s upper weir.

GLCA Dam Outlet Tube

The dropping of the lake level is necessary to allow for the robot that is used to transit the outlet tube without water running through the tube. The dam will be closed Sunday night to allow for the inspection and the lake will refill to the summer level as soon as the inspection is completed.

The GLCA performs these inspections on a regular basis as part of our safety inspection program that includes the dam and all associated controls.
