One day. Actually 5 hours is what they told us. They're working on a turbine at Table Rock Dam. They'll start dropping it the night before and bring it back up later on Tuesday. No biggie.

I'm having a hard time picturing the reason for the drawdown? Anyone know what effect Taney's level has on the TR dam?

Today's release is tomorrows gift to another fisherman.

Strictly a guess, but if they are doing something on one of the turbines I would think maybe they don't have any kind of a backflow gate. That would allow water from Taney back into the turbine. Like I said, just a guess.

Real men go propless!

From the Corps of Engineers press release that I posted the link to in post #1

"The Army Corps of Engineers, Little Rock District will repair the Table Rock Powerhouse water release system Monday, Nov. 4 requiring Lake Taneycomo to be lowered to an elevation of 696.5 feet."

Ahh so it is probably a bottom gate. That makes sense. I couldn't imagine how a turbine would be effected by the downstream side water level.

I imagine the gravel bed is deep enough to drain much of the pool below the dam.
