Table Rock Spillway Release
 
Heads up --
the Corps of Engineers will begin a spillway release from Table Rock Dam today. We expect little to no impact from this. However, we have a team on standby monitoring the situation and are making preparations to move quickly if things change.

From the Corps:

Five spillway gates will be opened one foot each releasing about 5,000 cubic feet per second combined with the 24-hour hydropower releases of about 10,000 c.f.s. the combined release will be about 15,000 c.f.s. One of the four hydropower turbines is currently off-line.

With 15,000 cfs equaling 4 full units they are only making up for one unit being down.
The good thing, lots of shad will be coming over the spillway leading to more fat and happy trout in Taneycomo. Also the consequential "stocking" of more warm water species like crappie, walleye, and bass.
