Lake Levels

Real Time Lake Levels



January 29, 2021




The lake is rising, but not quite as quickly as we hoped. If you have been following our lake drawdown progress reports, you know that the Town of Lake Lure, NC began refilling the lake on 1/20/21.

  • We have had to adjust the projected date the lake will be back at full pond.
  • Our original goal was to refill the lake by the end of the month, depending on the amount of rain received. 
  • We have only been able to raise the lake level by an average of (5) inches per day since 1/20/21 due to the small amount of rain we received. 
  • The revised estimate for having the lake back at full pond (990.5) is 2/18/21.  Again, this depends on the amount of rain we receive.
We will post updates here as new information becomes available.
