    So far the turn around has been great, and hopefully the current rainfall amounts will be able to maintain the lakes until spring. Most of the area lakes are actually above their target levels for this time of the year!!

    The real demand is several months away as spring and summer arrive, the target levels on the lakes are raised, lawn and garden watering starts, and evaporation takes it toll.

    Lake James
    Target...94.4
    Actual...93.7

    Lake Hickory
    Target...96.4
    Actual...97.5

    Lake Norman
    Target...94.6
    Actual...95.0

    Mt. Island
    Target...96.0
    Actual...97.3

    Lake Wylie
    Target...97.0
    Actual...95.3

    Lake Wateree
    Target...95.9
    Actual...97.2

    Thanks Wylie for posting this. Loks good! I would like to ask though, is this the actual "full" level of the lakes? Or is this just the target of what it needs to be? I would like to see a comparission of the real full level versus the target level if you can come up with such a request!
    Thanks in advance Wylie,
    ~Teddy
