From Dominion & LGA…..The week of January 21st, the Lake Gaston Dam will open spillway gates for the first time since operations began in the early 1960’s.
Scheduled replacement of equipment in the power house requires shutting down the turbines at the dam, and in order to maintain lake levels, one or two gates will be partially opened for approximately three weeks.
Dominion reminds boaters to always keep well away from the upstream and downstream faces of the dam.
Operation of the spillway gates has the potential to generate strong turbulence and currents in areas adjacent to the dam where these conditions are not normally experienced.”
