High river inflows in the Yadkin River basin have prompted Duke Energy to postpone the scheduled June 15 recreation flow release into the Pee Dee River below the Tillery Hydro Plant. The new release date is Saturday, June 29, 2019.
Upcoming scheduled release dates are June 22 and 29, July 6, 13 and 27, Aug. 10 and 24, and 31 and Sept. 7. The releases will begin at 6:30 a.m. and end at 10:30 a.m.
The target rate of all flow releases will range from 800 to 1,000 cubic feet per second, which is suitable for beginner and intermediate boaters and paddlers.
