Open house scheduled at Harry S. Truman Lake

Published Sept. 25, 2017
Truman Lake releases 12K cubic feet per second through the two power generation units and an additional 38K cfs through the tainter gates (pictured). We are coordinating with Ameren to maintain target levels in the Osage River. 

These releases are needed to get the lake back to a state where it can receive more water from the next rain events.
