Lake levels will fluctuate on a daily and seasonal basis due to weather conditions and electricity generation. The information contained on this web site is designed to provide accurate and timely information regarding current lake levels; however, this information is subject to change.

It’s been a very dry year in the Yadkin watershed. The amount of water flowing into the Yadkin Project is down nearly 50 percent from historical averages so far this year – and the forecast calls for dry continue through October.


The water flows are the lowest since 2008, creating significant challenges to maintain water levels in the lakes. When water levels are low, underwater obstructions may be closer to the surface.


APGI is closely monitoring flows and planning ahead to minimize the impact of low flows on reservoir water levels. With the Yadkin watershed officially in a drought, the company will follow drought protocols that were developed with state officials and local representatives to protect the water supply in the Yadkin Project.


APGI is committed to operating in a very conservative manner to help protect lake levels while continuing to meet our requirements to send water downstream.
