An amazing weather weekend just passed at Lake Gaston.
We received a heads up from Dominion Energy last Friday regarding anticipated high energy demand with the projected cold weekend temperatures They anticipated the demand could be regulated and keep water levels below 200.5 Thus, we didn't send out a high water alert.
This morning we received the good news notice below from Dominion Energy.
Lake Gaston topped out at 200.1 and the river downstream from Rapids never got to flood stage. Levels were close but the operators were able to provide the power requested and keep everything within limits.
Dominion exceeded the all-time peak demand in our service area on Christmas Eve.
Great job Dominion Energy!
