Current Lake Level & Temperature
Lake Level Projections
You can now see a recurring 10-day projection of lake levels in the Savannah River Basin for Lake Hartwell, Lake Russell and Lake Thurmond. This chart is updated weekly and shows both the actual current lake levels and the projected pumping schedules for inflow and outflow. Also included are any specific USACE comments regarding any drought or surging water concerns.
The current lake level, along with other data and information for streams and lakes in the Savannah River Basin, can also be obtained from the USACE’s Savannah Water Control page.
Also, a table showing observed lake levels, the Lake Hartwell rule curve, a 1-week estimated projection of lake levels that include Lake Russell and Lake Thurmond, and other related data can be seen on the USACE’s National Weather Service Rainfall Forecast page. Archives of previous reports can be obtained at the top of this same page by selecting the date in question from the appropriate column and then choosing the body of water you wish to review from the drop-down list.
