June 2016 Lake Levels and Flow Rates

Lake levels and flow rates for June at the Lake of the Ozarks were mostly on the low side compared to the five year moving average, ending at a comfortable 659.27', less than a foot from full pool. With the memory of the floods in 2015 still fresh in everyone's mind it was a little comforting to see some capacity available with all the rains forecast for the 4th of July holiday weekend.  Daily power generation (indicated in green by flow rates above 5000 cfs) was typical for summertime energy demands.
