Our original timeline for reopening San Vicente Reservoir still stands: sometime between late 2014 and 2017, depending on water supply and demand. The new marina is still in construction through this summer.
Iím not sure if you are asking if the water is 60 feet too low, or 60 linear feet short of the boat ramp. Neither is the case, however. This week the water is about 20 feet lower in elevation than the ramp (now in construction). With the statewide drought under way, cutbacks in water deliveries from Northern California and a hot summer (high water demands) on the horizon, we donít have a firm timeline for when the water level will reach (and stay) at the minimum elevation for boating.
On the plus side, the Water Authority and the city of San Diego opted to extend the new boat ramp about 20 feet lower than the original, so the city will have more options to maintain access to boaters during a future drought or major draw-down of stored water.
For more details about a reopening date, I will refer you to the city of San Diego lakes staff, since the city will operate the reservoir and determine when it can be opened. We understand you are eager to return to San Vicente, and that you have been waiting patiently for several years. Weíre nearly there, but not quite.
