Spillway opened

A gate on Grand Lake's West Bank spillway has been temporarily opened to release overflow from the recent snow and rain, according to Brian Miller, manager of Grand Lake St. Marys State Park. The rainfall from about three weeks ago and the recent snow has lifted the water level about 6 inches above normal pool, Miller said. The goal is to keep the lake level at 9 inches. The gate will be closed again March 15.
