Lakes & Recreation
High Water Alert
Significant, wide-spread rainfall is forecasted for the Duke Energy service territory. Those living along lakes, streams and other low-lying and flood-prone areas should pay special attention to changing weather conditions and take any necessary precautions. High water can also create navigational hazards on roads and waterways. Use caution and adhere to advice from local emergency management officials before going on area lakes or rivers.
Duke Energy created lakes as a source of electric power production, but we also reserved land for public access. Many of these access areas are operated in partnership with state, recreation, and law enforcement agencies in the Carolinas. Please become familiar with water safety rules and pay attention to warnings and signals around power plants.
