Lake Level

Recommended Posts

Guest

Why is the COE pulling the lake below pool level right now? It doesn't make any sense. I thought 1121 was pool in the spring time. It's 1119 & they're pulling water 24/7. 

Maintenance maybe?

I won't pretend to know why... but if you look at this historical chart http://beaver.uslakes.info/Level/  you can see how much higher the water was at the start of this year vs. historical.  You can also see a pretty consistent pattern of a lot of water coming in in April/May...  my guess:  they need to make a little room or else they could have a mess on their hands.

...That plus the Mississippi is just 4' shy of flood stage at Memphis and projected to be there at least another week.

They are just prepping, they need the lakes a little lower than normal just in case we get a big rain event.  With the flooding issues on the Mississippi, the white river lakes will have to hold back water if we do get a big rain so they are making sure we have storage capacity if needed

It’s good they’re moving water out but I don’t recall it ever happening in the past. They Usually do it after the flood. 

Today they stopped moving water, so the lakes backing up slowly.
