Lake Wateree - 5 Day Message History

ACTIVE
Last Update: 5/1/2016 1:50:17 PM
The Catawba River Basin, particularly from Charlotte south, is experiencing high runoff. With additional rainfall in the forecast, we will partially open a spillway gate at Fishing Creek and Cedar Creek and continue to manage the runoff throughout the basin, based on the forecast suggesting additional rainfall through Tuesday. At this time, we are not projecting Lake Wateree to spill. As always, we encourage those living along lakes, streams and other low-lying and flood-prone areas to pay special attention to changing weather conditions and take any necessary precautions. We will provide additional updates if conditions change. Updated lake levels are available any time at http://www.duke-energy.com/lakes and by calling 800-829-5253.
