Mark Twain Lake Announces Excess Debris on the Lake

Published June 3, 2019

Mark Twain Lake–The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Mark Twain Lake announces due to high water levels the lake has an excess amount of debris. This can create hazards on the lake as well as make some areas difficult to maneuver. This debris can also fluctuate and move throughout the day with wind patterns. Clarence Cannon Dam will also be near or at maximum release, utilizing tainter gates to release water, please take extra caution to stay away from the Dam. We ask that you stay aware while on the lake, avoid areas you may see with large amounts of debris, and wear a life jacket while on the water.

We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause. During this time we ask all of our recreation area visitors to follow posted signs in the area. We greatly appreciate your awareness and cooperation at this time.
