Lake Aldred

Please be advised that high-water conditions have washed away normal warning devices (buoys) at Safe Harbor & Holtwood Dam. 

Once conditions return to normal and it is safe to do so, the warning devices will be re-installed. 

Please use additional caution when on the river. Pay attention to your surroundings and respect all signage. 

Also, due to these conditions, the flashboards at Holtwood Dam were washed away. As a result, please expect low water levels until replacement work can take place.
