Atascadero Lake reached its capacity Tuesday, February 7, 2017, and is now draining into Atascadero Creek. It's the first time in seven years the lake has been full.

Atascadero Lake became the first local lake to spill this week when it reached its capacity and began emptying into a drainage channel.

The water is now flowing steadily out from the drainage near the playground at Atascadero Lake Park. From there, the channel runs under Highway 41 and into Atascadero Creek.
