Today water managers released the weekly declaration and 10-week projection for the Savannah River reservoirs, calling for next week’s outflows to remain at similar levels compared to last week.

Starting Saturday Oct. 12, the daily average outflow rate at the Thurmond Dam will slightly decrease to 3,920 cubic feet per second (cfs). No generation will take place over the weekend at the Hartwell and Russell Dams.

Starting on Monday Oct. 14, the daily average outflow rate at the Hartwell Dam will be 5,630 cfs. Outflows next week at the Russell Dam will be 8,480 cfs.

As of this writing, Hartwell Lake is 660.65 feet per mean sea level (ft-msl); Russell Lake is 474.23 ft-msl; and Thurmond Lake is 329.11 ft-msl.

As always, the declaration is subject to adjustment. We will post any changes or updates in the comments section below.
