The site has received 7.71 inches of precipitation since May 19. Nearly 3 inches of rain was recorded yesterday (Sunday, May 27). The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which operates the reservoir, pulled the stop logs and fully opened all gates to the lake at the dam.

Property owners should take caution to move any boat lifts, docks, etc., to higher ground. In addition, channels between lakes will have swift currents, and boaters should exercise caution when approaching and proceeding through. Corps staff will continue to monitor the situation on the reservoir and in the river, both upstream and downstream.
