Lake levels are high

Table Rock Lake levels remain very high and a number of docks and camping areas are experiencing flooding. This photo submitted by Deborah Schoen shows the Big M Marina boat dock. Water has reached the decking on many of the bridges over Table Rock, including the Central Crossing Bridge in Shell Knob where traffic was reduced to one lane because of the high water. Table Rock Dam set a new record for water release this week as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers began releasing 68,000 cubic feet of water per second to relieve pressure on the dam caused by high water levels behind it. According to the Corps, the plan is to continue the 68,000 per cubic feet release until the Table Rock pool elevation reaches 931 feet, which is currently forecast for Sunday. Once the pool is at 931 feet, the release of water from the dam into Table Rock will be reduced incrementally until elevations are reduced to 920 feet.
