Mark your calendars for the upcoming Shareholders Meeting which will be held at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Shanksville on Friday, May 27th, 2016 at 7pm.
There will be a lake draw down this fall. The start date is set for October 15, 2016. This is a good time to plan on making any lake front or dock repairs. Be sure to submit plans for docks in accordance with the SVDC Rules and Regulations. Even when funds become available for lake dredging, individual lakefronts will not get dredged. This is each property owner’s responsibility if they wish to deepen their lakefront and can be accomplished during the draw down.

Memorial Day Weekend/Kickoff to Lake Season

With the lake season quickly approaching, it is important for all boat operators to review Lake Stonycreek’s Rules and Regulations [.pdf], as well as the PA Boating Handbook [.pdf]. Let’s make this summer the most safe and enjoyable season yet. Can’t wait to see you out on the water!
Lowering the Lake
Mar. 20, 2014
The Lake Stonycreek Board is planning to lower the lake in the Fall 2014 to allow for dock and shoreline maintenance. The Board is also considering leaving the lake lowered over the winter to help reduce weeds. This will be further discussed at the Shareholder’s Meeting that will be held on Friday, May 23.
The downstream work on the dam outlet structure was completed this fall and work is now stopped until spring. Work completed through December included slip-lining the existing discharge pipe and installing the new downstream valve and headwall (see photo). Work will re-commence this spring and will include installing the upstream sluice gate and gate house building. The lake will not be lowered to perform this work. Work is on schedule and on budget to be completed by Memorial Day.
The first annual fishing derby was a great success. With 29 registered children ages 3-14, eight won 1st and 2nd place trophies. The total number of fish caught was 376 and each participant went home with a prize. The Stonycreek Valley Development Corporation (SVDC) would like to thank everyone who participated, helped with the event and made a donation. Check out photos from the event »

DEP Approves Stonycreek Dam Repair [.pdf]
July 2, 2013

The SVDC Board will bid the construction work in July with the intent of commencing the work in September. The project will be bid with the options of performing the work with and without a lake drawdown. The price will ultimately dictate if a drawdown will occur.
