The Land & Water Conservation is responsible for the operation and maintenance of Lake Noquebay Dam located in the Town of Lake in the southeast corner of the lake. The Lake Noquebay Dam was constructed in 1929. It consists of an earthen embankment with concrete and steel sing walls on the upstream face.
The Lake Noquebay Rehabilitation District performs the daily operation and water level adjustments under a contract with the Land & Water Conservation. Water levels in the lake are held between 666.2 feet and 666.6 feet of elevation except during the draw down period. Between October 15 and spring ice out, the lake is drawn down to 664.95 feet. Lake Noquebay is drawn down to prevent shoreline erosion due to ice movement and as a control measure for Variable Leaf Milfoil (Myriophyllum heterophyllum).
In 2001 a significant preventative maintenance effort was completed which included repair of the dam's concrete piers and installation of rip rap on the downstream portion of the dam.
