Lake Level Alerts

Week of September 30, 2019 – Dry conditions continue and without significant rainfall, lake levels will continue to fall.  High Rock Reservoir is approaching 4 feet down (the minimum elevation in September and October, as required by the Project license). Please be advised that Narrows Reservoir (Badin Lake) may fall to as much as 5 feet below its full pond elevation this week as Cube Yadkin continues to release the required downstream minimum flow (1,000 cfs). The Low Inflow Protocol (LIP) has not yet been triggered, and Cube Yadkin continues to operate the Project reservoirs within allowable operating ranges. Adjacent property owners are encouraged to use caution when navigating the lakes and to take whatever steps are necessary to protect personal property.
