    I just received a notice that Duke Energy will prohibit the use of irrigation systems on the Catawba chain of lakes, including Wateree, starting September 25, 2007. This restriction will last until there is suffient rain to restore streamflow. Other sources say that this will not happen until some time in October.

    Smart move. I don't understand why Duke Power waits until now to stop the use of water from the lake for such unimportant purposes.
