Lake Wateree

Last Update: 2/1/2016 10:00:56 AM
Duke Energy will continue to maintain Lake Wateree around 95 to 95.5 until Feb.15, 2016, subject to weather conditions and precipitation amounts. Duke Energy is required to begin running one unit at Wateree Hydro Station around the clock for downstream fish spawning and propagation for three months starting Feb. 15. The target lake level for Lake Wateree goes from 95.0 on Feb. 1 to 97.0 on March 1. Maintaining around 95 for two weeks provides an opportunity for dock repairs to be completed before Duke Energy begins to build storage for the spring and summer season. Updated lake levels are available any time at www.duke-energy.com/lakes and by calling 800-829-5253. As always, we encourage those living along lakes, streams and other low-lying and flood-prone areas to pay special attention to changing weather conditions and take any necessary precautions. We will provide additional updates if conditions change.
