Lake info available on app

Duke Energy has made its lake information “smartphone friendly.”

The site can be accessed on a smartphone at m.duke-energy.com. The default menu shows an option for Lakes and Recreation.

Duke Energy’s lake information websites – which include recreational water release schedules, lake levels and alerts – attract thousands of hits each month. The number rises steadily when heavy rainfall causes high water conditions at the lakes managed by the company.

In addition to accessing the new mobile-enabled website, boaters can check real-time lake levels and updates at duke-energy.com/lakes/levels.asp, and on Duke Energy’s lake information phone line at 800-829-5253.
