A minor water level reduction is scheduled to begin Monday, October 22, 2018 on the Phillips Chain: Soo Lake, Long Lake, Wilson Lake, Elk Lake, Duroy Lake and Musser Lake. Weather pending, Long Lake, Wilson Creek Flowage, Elk Lake, Duroy Lake, Solberg Lake and Musser Lake will be drawn down 8-10 inches. Soo Lake will be drawn down 12 inches. These overwinter drawdowns are done to prevent shoreline degradation as ice sheets shift throughout the winter. Levels will return to normal pool in the spring as the snow melts.
