The level of Schroon Lake may be literally up and down over the next few weeks, due to rain and the Starbuckville dam gates being closed.
We are getting word on the closures from Horicon Town Supervisor Matt Simpson, who says there’s a very good reason for the gates being closed.
“This is in cooperation with emergency first responders who are training in the Schroon River. We are fortunate to have the best swift water rescue units in NYS ready when we need them. ‘Thank You’ is not enough for the many hours of training they put in to be prepared when a need should arise. Thanks to all for your collaborative effort and understanding”
