Alliance Energy brought joy to homeowners on Swinging Bridge Reservoir, that they are reopening the reservoir for recreational use this Saturday, July 21st. Alliance completed the dam repair work weeks ahead of schedule, and have salvaged some of the summer lake season on Swinging Bridge. This is GREAT news! (Click here for the Times Herald Record article.) Alliance cautioned that the water level is only 1,055 feet above sea level, 15 feet below the traditional 1,070 level — so boaters are encouraged to keep speeds below wake level, particularly in the shallower northern end of the lake. They plan to keep raising the water level (at a maximum of one foot a day) until the 1,070 level is reached.
