How high will she go?

Recommended Posts

1132.03 crested. 

 

Now slowly dropping.  If they keep the gates open, it could drop 3-4ft by Friday.  Which will still be VERY high. 

 

The entire lake is dangerous for travel.  Someone will damage a bass boat guaranteed.

So the 2008 record level is the highest recorded at 1,132.21 with a release of 92,400cuft per second.  Yesterday the lake crested at 1,132.04 with 92,150cuft per second.

 

They just barely kept it from braking the record.

But that was a spring flood so IMO apples and oranges, there is no December on record to compare to this one. Just saying

With two days of full generation and the gates closed the water is holding just below 1130 by inches. I wonder how long they will be able to pass along the water? Getting Bull back down will be the priority now.

Well it looks like 1129 is where they are going to leave it for a while anyway. Generation has slowed and looks like a high water winter. Everyone thinks the winter is dry but the news from NASA is this El Nino is like nothing we have seen before and has not even started dumping on us, it will be wetter than 97-98. I am afraid will revisit this subject again soon.

I understand the Corp has to get Bull down, then Table Rock before they can let anymore out of Beaver, but with all this water backed up in Beaver it will just multiply their problems when the winter rains they are not used to hit them from this system.
