NAMPA -- Some unwanted news for boater at Lake Lowell.
Starting next week, two of the three major boat ramps will be closing.
The boat ramps at the Lower Dam Recreation Area and at the west end of the Upper Dam will be closed early next week because of dropping water levels.
Canyon County Sheriff's Marine Deputies say launching boats at such low water levels can damage boats, motors, trailers, and vehicles.
The disabled-accessible fishing dock at the west end of the Upper Dam will remain available for interested anglers.
