That's about nine feet below the tree line and nine feet above the 705-foot target level for this summer.</p><p>Some 23,600 cubic feet of water per second were being released through Wolf Creek Dam to lower the lake.</p><p>There are no problems at the dam. A 7-year rehabilitation of the mile-long structure was completed in March and the lake level was allowed to rise 20 feet for this summer's vacation season.</p><p>The heavy rains created tides along small creeks that washed a lot of debris into the lake.
