July 2018 Lake Levels and Flow Rates

Another unremarkable month on the Lake of the Ozarks for levels and flow, just the way we like it. With little rain to start and mild temperatures at the end of the month Ameren barely covered their operating costs generating very little power (indicated by flow over 10,000cfs in green).

The lake level finishes the month up about 3 inches above the five year moving average at 659.46'.

As usual for this time of year, the scale is exaggerated due to the relatively limited range of the data. Lake levels deviated only about 1 foot for the entire month.
