BRANSON, Mo. - The Army Corps of Engineers, Little Rock District will open five spillway gates today at Table Rock Dam to supplement hydropower turbine releases as it lowers the lake.
Five spillway gates will be opened one foot each to substitute for the one hydropower turbine unit which is currently offline for routine maintenance. At 10 a.m., five spillway gates began releasing 5,000 cubic feet per second. About 10,000 cf/s is being released through the hydropower turbines for a total release of 15,000 cf/s, which is the equivalent to four hydropower turbines at full power. The combined spillway and turbine releases will continue until the lake reaches elevation 916.
Daily lake information can be obtained at www.swl-wc.usace.army.mil or the Corps' mobile App which can be found in mobile App stores by searching for USACE Little Rock.
