What is the record release for Truman Dam?

I have tried to find it online and can't. Up to 60,000 CFS now. That is a lot of water. I think Table Rock's record is 72,000 back in 2015. Hope the forecast for next 10 days doesn't pan out. Pretty ominous if it does

Lake Ozark level at Bagnell is being reported at 659.1 and there is no way that is accurate.   

I am seeing more like 661.5 

You mean Ameren might be fudging the numbers?? No way

Boom!    Did I call it, or did I call it?   I knew that wasn't right.   😎  661.6

So yep, they are obviously trying to BS the locals.   The ignorant ones anyway.   That's funny.  They gotta be doing that because everyone looses their mind when the lake tops 660.  

Trying to keep the masses calm. 😄

Trust me, I know all about the locals and their precious 659. When I moved up here I couldn't get over the whining over a 1 foot drop or rise. Growing up on Stockton I was used to anything under 10ft difference from normal pool being acceptable and these people want to complain about 6" either way?

I think folks with marginal dock approaches do 90% of the whining.  My biggest concern involves electricity and docks...people can be stupid...especially at LOZ.

Not trying to rain on the conspiracy theory parade, but they only update that page once a day guys.

Ameren's page gets updated hourly.  They showed a high of 659.1 for 6/12. 

"Theory" it isn't.  I know a true 660 when I see it, and it was a good bit above that.   So what's your theory behind why they'd report different numbers to the people than they did to the COE?

I called the hotline yesterday and the message said they were inundated with calls and requests for info and apologized that they were running behind.  Could be a contributor... that said, their forecast was below 660 - I do like Wrench and gauge by level on my favorite fixed object(dock piling) and call the number primarily for projected discharges.  I like current for fishing.
