Scheduled Flow Releases

Caution: Do not enter the tailrace section directly below hydroelectric stations. These areas are prone to a sudden rise and violent turbulence in the water.

Note: Scheduled flow releases are subject to variability based on natural conditions and/or unexpected changes in hydro project operation. Duke Energy may, at any time, and without prior warning, change operations of our hydro facilities in response to high electricity demand, flooding, electric system emergencies or other conditions. Always exercise caution when boating or fishing on lakes and rivers. Please remember to stay 300 feet away from the upstream and downstream sides of the dam and powerhouse.
