Water Management
« on: February 01, 2021, 12:48:41 PM »
Does anyone have an idea of what to expect regarding water releases and strategy from the SoHo dam and others leading into Boone Lake this February and March?

I heard they planned to fill up Boone but So Ho lake looks like it is a long ways away from full pond.

It sounds like they are not starting refill until after May:

I would guess they would capture some of the fall draw down water, then any heavy winter flows, to bring it up to winter pool.  Then in the spring 2022, let it fill on the normal schedule.
