Tanasee Creek Lake - 5 Day Message HistoryACTIVE
Last Update: 1/28/2015 9:50:17 AM
To facilitate maintenance work at Tennessee Creek Hydro Station, Duke Energy has lowered Lakes Tanasee Creek and Wolf Creek. With the hydro station out of service, Tanasee Creek and Wolf Creek Lakes have risen and are both now above elevation 81 feet (bottom of the spillway gate) and is spilling. Please note that with variable flow rates during the maintenance work, both areas below these two dams should be avoided. The plan currently calls for both lakes to spill until the maintenance work is complete and to then begin refilling toward the Normal Minimum Target level by early April 2015. The refill rate is based on the weather and work schedule. The boat ramps owned by Duke Energy and operated by the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission will remain closed and reopen when the lakes have refilled. Please stay alert to changing weather conditions. Updated lake levels are available any time at http://www.duke-energy.com/lakes/levels.asp and at 800-829-5253. We will continue to closely monitor conditions and will provide updates as forecasts and conditions change.
