Caution, courtesy encouraged for Lake Cypress Springs

Caution and courtesy are being encouraged as a large number of people are anticipated to flock to Lake Cypress Springs during the coming week.

As of press time Tuesday, all boat ramps at Lake Cypress Springs were open and the lake was available for boating traffic. Recent rains have pushed the lake level to a foot above normal.  The water level must reach 2.5 feet above the normal level of 378 MSL before the lake is closed.
