Indiana Michigan Power is preparing for the upcoming winter season at its Elkhart Hydroelectric Generating Station located on Johnson St. near downtown Elkhart on the St. Joseph River. I&M lowers the reservoir level to prevent ice buildup.

Starting Monday, Dec. 12, I&M will lower the level from 741.5 feet above sea level to 739.5 feet above sea level. The water levels will decrease about six inches per day over a four-day period.

The reservoir level will return to its spring and summer operating level of 741.5 feet above sea level in early spring.
