December 2017 Lake Levels and Flow Rates

From the chart one might think Ameren is getting a jump on the draw down this year.  Lake levels ended a foot and a half below the five year average (grey line) for this time of year.  But notice there hasn't been a lot of power generation (indicated generally by flow of 10,000-30,000cfs) despite the cold temperatures. The slow gradual decline in lake levels is more an indication of our borderline drought conditions I would think.

Full year in review coming!
