Deer Point Reservoir drawdown begins Wednesday

BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - It's that time of year again- the annual drawdown of the Deer Point Reservoir.

The annual Deer Point Reservoir drawdown begins Wednesday November 20th. (WJHG/WECP)

Residents living on the water are reminded to remove their recreational items as the county prepares to lower the water level.

This is all part of an effort to maintain the healthy lake and water source by exposing vegetation to freezing temperatures.

It also provides local residents the opportunity to enter parts of the lake to clean it out.

The drawdown will end on February 28th.
