Lake Norman Lake Levels: Important Update 4/5/2017

Lake Norman Lake Levels down

4/25/2017 Update:  I just checked and Lake Norman’s lake levels are up to 99.4′ thanks to our significant rainfall in the past few days.  Duke Energy provided updates for smaller lakes with some potential for flooding: Duke Energy Site.  They did not include Lake Norman or Lake Wylie in this warning. 

Duke Energy posted this important update for Lake Norman on April 3rd:

03-APR-17 Lake Normans elevation is expected to be lower than customary this year from mid April through early June. This is in part due to the Catawba River Basin being in a Low Inflow Protocol LIP drought Stage 1. Planned maintenance work at McGuire Nuclear Station requires the elevation not to exceed 96.5 ft. Once the outage is completed, we may be able to move the elevation closer toward the late spring target level of 98 ft weather permitting. Please be aware these projections can change based on actual rainfall and changes to the drought stage. 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.
