Because of potential seismic safety risk in a section of the foundation of the Lake Perris Dam, the water level at Lake Perris has been lowered 25 feet.
The result has been more exposed beach areas and about a 20% reduction in the lake's surface area. Consequently the number of boats allowed on the lake at one time was reduced. Making a reservation is recommended. (800) 444-7275.
The Department of Water Resources completed the dam remediation design in summer 2012, and construction should begin in late 2014. Completion of the dam remediation is expected by 2017.
A hand-launching site at Lake Perris for small sailboats, kayaks, and canoes is located at Sail Cove.
