Lake Wateree

ACTIVE
Last Update: 4/20/2014 9:27:16 AM
Due to heavy runoff into the Lower Catawba-Wateree River Basin following significant rainfall, Duke Energy has partially opened spillway gates at Cedar Creek and Fishing Creek Dams, which are upstream of Lake Wateree. Current projections show that Lake Wateree will continue to rise and spill late this afternoon or this evening. We don't expect it to exceed 101.5 feet. We are closely monitoring inflows and will provide updates as needed.

Please stay alert to changing conditions. Updated lake levels are available any time at http://www.duke-energy.com/lakes/levels.asp and at 800-829-5253. For your convenience, online lake level information is now smart phone-friendly. We will continue to closely monitor conditions and provide updates if conditions change.
