High Rock Lake News


September 6, 2015

Yadkin River flows have been declining steadily all summer and have reached low flow levels similar to those seen in 2002 which caused High Rock Lake to drop to disastrously low levels.  These reduced river flows have resulted in steadily dropping water levels at High Rock Lake and Badin Lake.  In an effort to slow these lake level declines APGI recently sent an emergency request to FERC to reduce the discharge requirements from the project.  You can view their request to FERC here.  These type of requests are normally supported by all stakeholder groups and historically have been approved by FERC promptly in an effort to protect the environment throughout the Yadkin watershed during extended periods of drought conditions.
