5.10.14 Lake Below Flood Stage

After more than three weeks, Lake Champlain finally fell below flood stage Saturday.
After more than three weeks above flood stage, Lake Champlain finally fell out of flood Saturday.

After heavy rain combined with snow melt in April, the lake went above its 100 foot flood mark on April 17. It peaked at 100.51 feet on April 20.

As of this evening the water dropped to 99.72 feet in Burlington. The average height for this time of the year is 98.56 feet.

If you're near the lake, you'll certainly still notice very high water. In Burlington, for example, the breakwater is hardly visible from shore.

The level is likely to keep creeping down for the next few days.
