Bear Creek Lake - 5 Day Message History

Last Update: 8/10/2015 2:30:27 PM
The East Fork and West Fork Projects on the Tuckasegee River are in Stage 1 drought conditions, and Low Inflow Protocol measures have been implemented. We will make West Fork flow releases in place of East Fork recreation flows. If conditions allow, the Cedar Cliff spillway gate will be partially opened on Saturday, August 15 to support recreational flow releases. Due to an unplanned outage at Cedar Cliff Hydro Station, no East Fork flow releases are scheduled until operations resume. West Fork flow releases will continue as scheduled. Additional West Fork releases will be made to support recreational releases. At the present time, Duke Energy will maintain the minimum flow releases for normal conditions.
