Why One Table Rock Dam Spillway is open

180328 Typically, when Table Rock gets over Conservation Pool, 915 at this time of year, the plan calls for four generators going full bore unless it gets over 920 at which point they will go to a combination of less than one spill way and generators to equal 20,000 cfs combined total release. Table Rock Lake is over its Conservation Pool right now at 916 and "one unit is offline; therefore, turbine releases are being augmented with spillway releases of 5,000 cfs for a total release of approximately 15,000 cfs." It is anticipated that the offline turbine will be repaired later today, be put back in operation, and the spillways closed.
