CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Anglers who fish Wylie, Wateree, Norman and other reservoirs managed by Duke Power now can check on lake levels via their smartphones at https://m.duke-energy.com/lake-levels/.

“It’s the same information that is on our website,” said spokesperson Lisa Huffman. “But when you use your smartphone to go to the website, it can be difficult to navigate and read the information.”

Huffman said that Duke has seen a small uptick in activity from anglers since the launch of the new option, even though traffic normally slows during dry weather.

“The lake level information is most popular when we’re having wet weather,” she said, adding that the page attracts nearly 250,000 unique visitors monthly during the recreation season.

“We’ve provided this information for years, knowing how important it is to people who live near the lakes and to those who use them for recreation,” Huffman continued.

“We’re always looking for new ways to meet our customers’ needs. This enhancement will make popular lake information even more accessible.”

In addition to water levels, the page provides facts, maps and scheduled flow releases, as well as management and access information.
