Duke Energy has made its lake information “smart phone-friendly” in time for the peak of hurricane season.
The site can be accessed on a smart phone at m.duke-energy.com. The default menu shows an option for “Lakes and Recreation.”
Duke Energy’s lake information web pages – 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.
“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,” said Duke Energy spokesperson Lisa Hoffmann. “We’re always looking for new ways to meet our customers’ needs. This enhancement will make popular lake information even more accessible.”
Duke Energy’s lake management teams are prepared for severe weather. Lakeside residents are encouraged to be prepared by monitoring weather forecasts and checking for lake level alerts when heavy rainfall is predicted.
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.
