PATOKA LAKE — Due to rain amounts less than forecasted, the Louisville District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says water levels at Patoka Lake have not reached the spillway as predicted.

The Corps continues to monitor the situation and is working to regain flood control storage as quickly as possible. 

The lake is expected to stay above the target summer pool elevation of 536 feet for most of the summer as it will take time to regain all of its flood storage capacity.

The Corps continues to work with stakeholders to reduce the lake level and to keep the community informed while managing lake releases.
