DILLON, Colo. (CBS4)- All the spring snow is giving a big boost to Lake Dillon.

The water level at the lake is down considerably due to two years of drought conditions.

It’s still down about 28 feet from capacity but the manager of the Dillon Marina said the water level is rising quickly.

“Right now it’s coming up about six inches a day in the vertical sense. So as far as the horizonal sense, up on the shore it could be up to a foot,” said Dillon Marina Manager Bob Evans.

The Dillon Marina is open for boating this weekend but there are construction zones.

The work was delayed due to all the snow this spring. The project will improve parking and the boat ramp.
