Water withdrawal from Upper Crooked Lake was schedule to terminate on October 15th. Due to warmer than normal weather, the Drain Commissioner’s office was able to reach an agreement with EGLE to allow withdrawals to continue until November 6th. A second extension for water withdrawals has been requested and is pending review/approval by EGLE. If approved, this extension would allow withdrawals to continue only to keep Upper Crooked Lake from further rising and would expire upon ice formation on the lake. 

Per the stipulations listed in the issued EGLE permit, spring 2020 withdrawals from Upper Crooked Lake will commence after April 30th.

  1. For the lake level graph it should be noted that the culvert under M43 that empties Glasby into upper Crooked, was plugged all summer. MDOT unplugged it the same week the pump was shut down and it is still flowing.
