The City of Branson expects minor flooding along the banks of Lake Taneycomo as the Corps of Engineers, Little Rock District’s announces increase spillway release from Table Rock Dam.
The Corps started the spillway releases Thursday and increased again Friday morning to manage lake levels from recent rains. This release is expected to last throughout the weekend.
According to the Corps, the maximum peak flow experienced downstream of the dam may be up to 21,500 CFS during the spill. This is enough to cause minor flooding at the banks of Lake Taneycomo. The City is not expecting a significant impact.
As with any spillway release, the City of Branson has a team on standby monitoring the situation and is making preparations to move quickly if things change. As usual, residents and businesses near the shore of Taneycomo should be water aware and keep an eye on the lake levels.
