Lake Hickory

Last Update: 3/13/2015 3:20:18 PM
Duke Energy has been operating Lake Hickory around 96 ft. (local datum) in anticipation of planned maintenance work at Oxford Hydro which has been delayed due to weather conditions. In addition, the lake level is managed in consideration of possible downstream impacts. The lake level will stay in this general range through the end of March and then begin to rise in April, but then be lowered back toward 96 ft. in May to support the planned work. Once the work is completed, the lake level will move toward the late spring and summer target level. Please stay alert to changing weather conditions. Updated lake levels are available any time at http://www.duke-energy.com/lakes/levels.asp and at 800-829-5253. We will continue to closely monitor conditions and will provide updates as forecasts and conditions change.
