"We are watching the weather. (We are) staying on our guide concerning lake levels.  We are at 171.1.  Our full pool is 172.  Our guide says we start gate operations if it reaches 172.5.  We completely follow the guide approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission," said Galassi.

12News will post any announcements from the SRW on facebook and on our 12News app.
