Flood Gates - Update

Recommended Posts

Just got an email from the Corp.

Basically, they should be done with turbine maintenance today BUT they probably will do more work this weekend in which all turbines will be offline and gates opened.  How much water released depends on this week's rainfall.

This may be a pattern for quite a while.

They talk about divers... the only thing I can think of it that they're trying to unclog the intakes on the lake side of the dam.  When divers are in the water, gates 9 and 10 are releasing water.  If they are not, more gates are opened, like what they did this past weekend.

We saw shad in the water all day yesterday, more shad when more than 2 gates were opened.

Turbines will be back offline this weekend and gates opened.

Do you have any idea what time they will open the gates? Me and my boy thought it would be neat to be there when they were opening the gates.
