The fall drawdown has been extended one week until Nov. 19th by the DNR, but unfortunately the flow into Lake Zumbro has been higher than normal. The full drawdown of 4 feet will not be attainable this year. Once the lake level reaches winter pool elevation of 913.0, we will maintain that level until spring. I do want to assure to everyone that RPU is passing as much water as we can through both turbines. Please refer to the National Weather Service link below to view the 7-day lake level predictions. Contact Todd at 507-280-1589 if you have any questions.
The Lake Zumbro Water Level was 914.59 ft. and the Lake Zumbro Dam Tail Water Level was 859.89 ft. on 11/16/18 at 12:45:00 PM.
