Duke Energy has closed the spillway gates at Cedar Creek and Fishing Creek Dams, which are upstream of Lake Wateree. We expect Lake Wateree to gradually recede to below 100 feet by tomorrow morning. The rate of decline is dependent on rainfall amounts and location. We are closely monitoring inflows.
