Griggs Reservoir Water Levels to be Lowered for Inspection Work

Water levels on Griggs Reservoir will be visibly lower beginning this week in preparation for routine dam inspection work to be done. Overall the level will drop about three feet in the coming weeks for the independent inspection, which will include divers and video surveillance technology.

The lower elevation pool level will require extra caution by boaters during this time when docking, launching or operating their vessels. The public may refer to the following Web site for real-time reservoir elevations:   

Similar inspections will also take place on Hoover Reservoir in a few weeks.

If residents have questions about the inspection work, they may call the Division of Water Technical Support Office at 614-645-7100. Questions regarding recreational use of the reservoirs should be directed to the Recreation and Parks Department Customer Service Office at 614-645-3337.
