Drought: Lake San Antonio to Be Closed

After considering their budget and the severe statewide drought on Thursday, the Monterey County Board of Supervisors announced that Lake San Antonio, which is located partly in southern Monterey County and partly in northern San Luis Obispo County, will be closed this summer on its south and north shores starting July 1.

Lake San Antonio contains roughly 1.5 miles of water surface, but local authorities insisted that the water available would not permit recreation as normal. Lake Nacimiento in San Luis Obispo County will remain open, with 13 miles of water surface.

The water depletion in Lake San Antonio has been noticed for some time; in 2013, county officials considered closing Lake San Antonio to recreation for the first time. In 2014, The Wildflower Triathlon had to move the swim portion two miles from where it has normally been held because of low water levels.
