Lake Level Alerts

Recent high precipitation in the Yadkin River basin and extremely high inflows into the Yadkin Project mean the Project reservoirs are full and we may be bypassing water.  Please use caution in the dam tailrace areas, and when boating, as there may be floating debris in the reservoirs.


Cube Carolinas recognizes the importance of keeping lake residents and recreational users updated about current lake conditions.
