Due to significant upstream inflows into Lake Murray, SCE&G will begin opening one spill gate overnight at the Saluda Hydro facility. SCE&G has notified emergency officials and will begin opening one spill gate at 4 a.m. releasing up to an additional 18,000 CFS inflow into the Lower Saluda River. We will continue to monitor lake levels to determine if additional actions will be necessary over the next 48 hours. Residents will notice lake levels continuing to rise, but they will not exceed the 360 licensed operating level.
We advise residents to remain alert to SCE&G social media outlets, local news channels and local officials for additional information. You can find SCE&G on Twitter at @scegnews and on Facebook at SCE&G.
