SPILLGATES OPENING TUESDAY, MARCH 5

Recommended Posts

From the Corp just now -

With plant outages scheduled during work at the Table Rock Powerhouse, The Corps will need to pass inflows using the main spillway.  This spill should remain constant during the duration of the plant outage.  If the units come back online, the spillway gates may be shut and releases be made through the turbines.  Tuesday morning, gates 9 and 10  will be open 2 feet each.  The flow over the spillway will be roughly 3,900 cfs.  Please contact me if you have any questions. 

The way I read it, all turbines will be down for this repair.  3900 cfs will be running over gates 9 and 10 for the duration.

What does this mean?  3900 cfs is equal to about one unit flow.  And shad should come over the spill gates for most if not all the time.

Good fishing ahead!!!!

Last week there was a Mo-Dot sign on the dam that said the hwy across the dam would be shut down 3-11-19 for the day.  Don't know if they changed that or not, but I think I mentioned it to Phil and it said one day.

One day usually means multiple but since they are shutting down the Hwy, I bet they think they can fix it fast.

Obviously the warmer water coming over will warm things up, but will this have any negative effects with the DO?  I'm sure smarter folks than me have already figured this out, just curious...

Might be totally unrelated to this. 3/11 is in a week.  The turbines are free standing at the base of the dam.  Doesn't make much since.

I'm hoping for a couple of weeks at least.  When one turbine is down for maintenance it takes weeks.

No the lake water may be cooler than Taney... DO will be about the same.

Really a couple weeks?

Any pictures of it yet?
