Duke Energy recently released its Lake View app to provide information including lake levels and scheduled flow releases for lakes and rivers managed by the company.
Along the 225 miles of the Catawba River basin, the company operates 13 hydroelectric stations and 11 reservoirs from Lake James in North Carolina south to Lake Wateree in South Carolina. The app covers these lakes and rivers, along with Lake Tillery and Blewett Falls Lake in the Yadkin-Pee Dee River basin, Lake Keowee and Lake Jocassee in the Keowee-Toxaway basin, and Ninety-Nine Islands in the Broad River basin.
In the mountains of North Carolina, the app can help you plan a whitewater rafting, fishing or boating visit to the Nantahala River, the Tuckasegee River or the Pigeon River.
The app can be customized for specific lakes of interest.
The app is available at Google Play and the App Store. Search “Duke Energy Lake View” and download. Information is also available on the Duke Energy lakes website.
