City Water, Light and Power is cautioning boaters at Lake Springfield to use caution when boating in the lake. Low water levels increase the risk of damage in areas where water is more shallow than normal.
The utility is placing barricades at some of the docks at Lindsay Boat Launch because of the low water level. Boaters are encouraged to use caution at all docks in areas where the shallow water could cause problems from unseen hazards like logs or other debris.
CWLP is also encouraging the public to call their security office at 757-8600 to report any such hazards.
