In time for peak hurricane season, Duke Energy is going mobile with its lake level information.
The smart phone-friendly website can be accessed at www.duke-energy.com. The default menu shows an option for “Lakes and Recreation.” Duke Energy’s lake information web pages include recreational water release schedules, lake levels and alerts. The page attracts thousands of hits each month when heavy rainfall causes high water at lakes managed by the company.
“We’ve provided this information for years, knowing how important it is to people who live near the lakes and to those who use them for recreation,” said Duke Energy spokesperson Lisa Hoffmann. “This enhancement will make popular lake information even more accessible.”
Lakeside residents are encouraged to monitor weather forecasts and check for lake level alerts when heavy rains are in the forecast. The public also can check real-time lake levels and special updates, 24 hours a day, online or over the phone.
