Lake Glenville - 5 Day Message History

Last Update: 7/25/2016 8:24:16 AM
Duke Energy has scheduled a Tuckasegee River Bypass release below Lake Glenville for Saturday, July 30, 2016. A spillway gate will be partially opened by 10 a.m. and will remain open until 3 p.m. or later. Note that the duration of the opening is one hour less due to being in a drought condition. Duke Energy may make unscheduled gate releases without any prior warning or notice if warranted by significant rainfall. Parking at the take out must not block access to Duke Energys Thorpe Powerhouse substation. 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.

The East Fork and West Fork Projects on the Tuckasegee River are in Stage 1 drought conditions and the Low Inflow Protocol measures have been implemented. East Fork and West Fork flow releases will continue as scheduled but will be reduced by one hour.
