What’s Going On With Lake Murray Water Levels?

updated 12/5/2020

Everyday we post Lake Murray water levels on our website and social media accounts. The number one questions we have received over the last few weeks is “how low will the lake go?”

In an October 2, 2020 press release, Dominion Energy stated that they have “confirmed its Lake Murray water levels for the remainder of 2020” and they plan “to maintain the lake close to its current 356-foot level through the peak of hurricane season in mid-October, then gradually lower the lake to a target elevation of 354 feet by the end of the year.”

The Lake Murray water level began to be lowered September 15, 2020 in anticipation of heavy rainfall as a result of the remnants of Hurricane Sally that forecasted to have an impact in our area. That drawdown complied with guidance from the SCDHEC.
