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. Duke Energy will make West Fork flow releases in conjunction with a partial opening of the Cedar Cliff spillway gate on Thursday, August 20 and Saturday, August 22 to support recreational flow releases at Dillsboro. 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.

Duke Energy has scheduled a Tuckasegee River Bypass release below Lake Glenville for Saturday, August 1, 2015. A spillway gate will be partially opened by 10 a.m. and will remain open until 4 p.m. or later. Duke Energy may make unscheduled gate releases without any prior warning or notice if warranted by significant rainfall events. WARNING: high flows and the natural environment of the bypassed reach can create dangerous conditions. The bypass is six miles long, narrow and challenging, and is recommended for advanced paddlers only. Fishermen should be alert to rapidly changing flow and dangerous conditions
