Pomme de Terre Lake continues to maintain high inflows that began on March 12th and is expected to continue through early spring. The lake will continue to maximize releases of 3,000 cubic feet per second, or cfs, up to 3,500 cfs as downstream conditions allow. 

The lake forecast indicates a release of 3,000 cfs will continue till approximately April 9, 2021 with no additional rainfall and potentially into late April with additional rainfall in the basin.

Pomme de Terre Lake is currently at pool elevation 848.22 feet which results in 20.3% of the flood control pool being occupied. Inflows are estimated at 450 cfs with a reservoir release of 3,000 cfs. 

The public is encouraged to exercise safety on and near the water.  Lake level and release information can be obtained from the Corps website at http://www.nwk.usace.army.mil/Locations/Water-Management/.
