While reviewing the options for lake level control the WCA would like you to keep in mind the following information:
Occasional flooding cannot be prevented entirely, but to reduce the frequency to the extent feasible, as well as the severity and duration of any flood, we must be able to discharge at least 150 cubic feet per second at any “normal” lake level. This flow rate provides the ability to maintain a small (6 to 9 inches) buffer against flooding through summer, and to reduce the lake level to target winter level before freeze-up.
Which of the Options being examined – can do this?
