Lake Level: 100.5

Special Message: 21-APR-19 Conditions have improved in the Green River Basin. Lake Summit continues to spill, but the lake level is declining. In addition to current spilling, Duke Energy will perform scheduled maintenance at the Tuxedo Hydro Station switchyard beginning Monday, May 6, 2019, with an estimated completion date of June 10. The hydro station will have no units available during the maintenance outage. During this five-week period, Lake Summit will exceed the full pond level of 100 feet, but is not expected to exceed 102 feet. Significant rainfall will cause higher lake levels. We will provide updates if the outage schedule changes. Updated lake levels are available any time at, 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.
