Grenada Lake Nearing its Overflow Level

Lake Officials at Grenada Lake are still monitoring the Lake on a 24-hour surveillance watch, as the lake is close to its Emergency Spillway Mark.

As of earlier today Grenada Lake level was at 230ft, which is less than one ft away from going over.

When the lake surpasses 231 ft above sea level, and goes over the spillway crest, officials tell us it will go into the Old River Run, and then back into the Yalobusha River.

Grenada Lakes has overflowed the Emergency Spill Way four times since the construction of the Dam. The first time in 1972, then twice in the 1980's, and the last time in 1991.
