Wolf Creek Lake

Last Update: 11/5/2014 1:00:41 PM
To facilitate maintenance work at Tennessee Creek Hydro Station this fall and winter, Duke Energy has gradually lowered Lakes Tanasee Creek and Wolf Creek. With the hydro station out of service, the lakes will gradually refill and begin spilling. For Tanasee Creek Lake, projections suggest the lake will rise to elevation 81 feet (bottom of the spillway gate) and begin spilling in about a week. Wolf Creek Lake is not expected to reach 81 feet for several weeks. The plan currently calls for both lakes to spill until the maintenance work is completed and to then refill to the Normal Minimum Target level by early March 2015. The refill rate is weather and work schedule dependent. The Powerhouse Access Area boat ramps owned by Duke Energy and operated by the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission will remain closed and reopen when the lakes have refilled. 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.

To facilitate maintenance work at Tennessee Creek Hydro Station this fall and winter, Duke Energy will gradually lower Lakes Tanasee Creek and Wolf Creek to 50 feet below full pond by early November. As currently planned, the lake levels will fall below the Normal Minimum Elevation at the close of the recreational season, just after Labor Day. The current plan calls for both lakes to refill to the Normal Minimum Target level by early March 2015, but the refill rate is weather- and work schedule-dependent. The Powerhouse Access Area boat ramps owned by Duke Energy and operated by the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission will close in mid-September and reopen when the lakes have refilled. 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.
