Lake Wateree

Last Update: 4/23/2015 9:40:10 AM
Conditions are gradually improving along the Catawba-Wateree River Basin. A gate remains partially open at both Fishing Creek and Cedar Creek Hydro Stations upstream from Lake Wateree. Duke Energy expects to further partially close both of the gates late this afternoon Lake Wateree is at 100.4 feet and will decrease overnight following the change in gate positions. Duke Energy will continue moving water through the system in preparation for rainfall forecasted later this week. Lake Wateree is expected to stay above 100 feet, and it may take several days for the lake level to return to the normal operating level. We continue to closely monitor conditions and operate the system to reduce impacts. Updated lake levels are available any time at www.duke-energy.com/lakes/levels.asp 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.
