Dominion Energy has confirmed its Lake Murray water levels for the remainder of 2020.

Lake Murray, SC - Dominion Energy, the owner of Lake Murray, said Friday that the company plans to maintain the lake close to its current 356-foot level through the peak of hurricane season in mid-October, then gradually lower the lake to a target elevation of 354 feet by the end of the year.

Dominion Energy began lowering the lake on Sept. 15 in anticipation of heavy rainfall and higher-than-normal waterflow as the remnants of Hurricane Sally impacted South Carolina. The drawdown complied with guidance from the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control. “We took these precautionary measures to ensure operational preparedness for unusually high rains that were in the forecast,” Dominion Energy South Carolina vice president of Power Generation Jim Landreth

said. “Fortunately, rainfall amounts were not excessive. Boaters and swimmers should remember that lower water levels will result in exposed underwater hazards.”
