lake norman water levels when high

Thanks to this week’s heavy rains, Duke Energy has again released an alert regarding our high water levels.  Here is the Alert:

Lake Norman

24-FEB-19 February 24, 2019, at 7:00 AM. The Catawba River Basin has seen increased run-off from the recent rainfall. Duke Energy Hydro Operations is aggressively moving water through the river system. Lake Norman lake level will be higher than normal for several days. At this time, we do not expect spilling to occur at Mountain Island; however, additional rainfall can cause higher river flows and lake levels. We will provide additional updates if conditions change. 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. Updated lake levels are available any time at, or by calling 800-829-5253.
