Lake Wateree - 5 Day Message HistoryACTIVE
Last Update: 3/7/2014 5:41:09 PM
We are experiencing heavy runoff into the Lower Catawba-Wateree River Basin following significant rainfall. Duke Energy will partially open a spillway gate at Cedar Creek and Fishing Creek Dams, which are upstream of Lake Wateree, early this evening. Current projections show that we will begin spilling Lake Wateree tomorrow afternoon. We do not expect Lake Wateree to exceed 102 feet. We will provide an update tomorrow morning.
Please stay alert to changing conditions. Updated lake levels are available any time at http://www.duke-energy.com/lakes/levels.asp and at 800-829-5253. For your convenience, online lake level information is now smart phone-friendly. We will continue to closely monitor conditions and provide updates if conditions change.
