DECATUR – Lake Decatur dock and boat owners are advised to check their docks and boats as necessary due to the lake level continuing to gradually decrease as a result of below normal rainfall over the past 2 months. Lake Decatur’s water elevation is 612.5 feet above mean sea level, which is 2 feet below the full summer elevation of 614.5. It will continue to slowly decline until a significant amount of rain is experienced later this fall. The City is not concerned about the quantity of water in Lake Decatur as it is currently 81% full. Property owners adjacent to the lake are encouraged to take advantage of the low water level to remove debris from their shoreline area if it is safe to do so.
