Lake Secession Water Level Drawdown

The water level at Lake Secession will be lowered to approximately 20 feet below full pool to do maintenance to the Hydro Dam. Drawing the water down will take approximately 25 days and will be accomplished by opening the spillway gates.
Drawdown will begin immediately following approval of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.


The target date to begin work is December 6, 2021. Upon completion of the work, the amount of time required to reach normal lake levels will depend upon the flow of the Rocky River and rain events.

If you have any questions, please call Abbeville Public Utilities at 864-366-5058.
