Lake Norman under Stage 1 Drought Conditions

Lake Norman Lake Levels down

Our Lake Norman area as well as most of western North Carolina experienced a summer of higher than normal temperatures and lower than average rainfall.  The result is a drop in our lake levels a Stage 1 drought condition declared by Duke Energy which limits the use of lake water for irrigation.  Here is the latest update from Duke Energy’s’ Website:

Lake Norman

01-NOV-16 Long-term dry weather conditions have resulted in the implementation of Stage 1 drought conditions for the Catawba-Wateree River Basin. The community is asked to be mindful of its water use and consider conserving energy which also saves water. Residents who use water from a Duke Energy lake for lawn irrigation are asked to limit watering to Tuesdays and Saturdays. Updated lake levels are available any time at www.Duke-Energy.com/lakes or by calling 800-829-5253. 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 updates if conditions change.
