Johns Lake Water Level Update


     Lake levels are measured by using the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88). It is similar but not the same as measuring from “Sea Level”. The official recorded lake level as of September 20, 2019 was 96.70 feet above NAVD 88 and the Normal High Water Level is 97.36 NAVD 88. This level is less than one foot below the Normal High-Water Elevation.

     Although variations in lake elevation are very good for the health of the lake and fish habitat if it gets too high it could flood some of our homes and cause damage to our docks.
