Glade Run Lake Opens April 12, 2017
Filling up the lake has begun, but it will be an extended process.  An earthen dam depends in part on the dam being saturated with water to provide weight and strength. Therefore, the Fish and Boat Commission will be filling the lake slowly and taking measurements from the test wells along the back of the dam.  How long this process takes depends on many factors but don’t despair, the lake will be refilled and be back even better than before!

Fish stocking will occur on April 10th and ribbon cutting ceremony will April 12th, from 11 am to 12 pm.

Mark your calendars and celebrate.
