Flow Arrival and Recession Times Catawba-Wateree

The Catawba-Wateree River basin is in a Low Inflow Protocol Stage 1 condition.

Duke Energy will continue to monitor conditions for the basin.  Note that lake levels will vary with weather conditions.

Please continue to conserve water and make it a daily habit regardless of drought condition.

Downstream flow schedules recorded at 4:20 AM on Friday, October 24, 2014.

Downstream flow schedules are approximate and subject to variability based upon natural conditions and /or unexpected changes in hydro project operation. Duke Energy may, at any time, and without prior warning, change operations of our hydro facilities in response to high electricity demand, flooding, electric system emergencies or other conditions. Flow arrival is the approximate time when flow begins to increase as a result of upstream hydro project operation. Maximum flow normally occurs after the estimated arrival time and normally ends prior to the estimated recession time. Flow recession is the approximate time when most of the generated flow has passed.

Please remember to stay 300 feet away from the upstream and downstream sides of the dam and powerhouse. Do not enter the tailrace section directly below hydroelectric stations. These areas are prone to a sudden rise and violent turbulence in the water.
