8/28/2012 - Village Water Level Reaches Record High

Tropical Storm Isaac brought us a lot of rain and the water level in the lake reached a record high of 20 feet above sea level, but our homes were not flooded and our streets remained passable.

Above- The lake at 20.0 feet above sea level, which is 4.0 feet above it's design level of 16.0 feet. At this depth almost all of the path around the lake is under water.

Above - At 20.0 feet, numerous ponds form throughout the community because they are drainage points that are connected to the lake.

Above - And at 20.0 feet, even the park, which is also connected to the lake by the drainage system, floods.

Above - But at 20.0 feet, the lowest spots in the parking lots and streets are still easily passable.

Bottom line - Our community was designed to handle a lot of water and it passed this most challenging test since the community opened in 2007 with flying colors.

For more on how the lake system is designed and why it should be able to handle even heavier rainfalls and greater depths see How Things Work - The Lake.

Additional Information - Illustrations Draining the Rain - A 3Tier System and The 19 Drainage Districts in the County.
