Regulating Level of Gatun Lake.

A circular issued by the Engineer of Maintenance on May 16, 1930,
states that the following schedule for maintaining Gatun Lake during
the 1930 rainy season will be adhered to as closely as conditions permit:

The lake will be allowed to fill to elevation 85.50 before any water is wasted over
the spillway. However, spilling for sanitary purposes or for exhibition will be
permitted upon approval of the Chief of Surveys. The lake will be held between
elevations 85.50 and 86.00 until October 1; filled to elevation 86.50 in October;
and to elevation 87.00 after November 1, to be varied slightly according to water
supply conditions. After spillage is begun, a variation of 0.50 foot from above
elevations will be allowed to lessen the number of gate operations.
