TUPPER LAKE - The state Department of Environmental Conservation is trying to clear up what it calls numerous rumors about the Upper and Lower Low's Dams.
The DEC owns and manages the Low's Upper Dam, which controls water levels of Low's Lake, and the Low's Lower Dam, which control's water levels in Hitchens Pond. These waters serve as the headwaters of the Lower Bog River which joins the Bog River to become the largest tributary to Tupper Lake.
DEC staff inspected both of the dams on Friday, April 29, and Monday, May 2, and reported that both dams are intact and in no danger of failing.
DEC has not opened any gates of either of the dams to release water and has no plans to release waters from either dam.
