Corps now releasing some water from lake

Staff Writer

Grenada Lake was spared from going over the Emergency Spillway during the weekend, but officials say the water is still extremely high, and they “have a long way to go. “
“We managed to open the middle gate this week two feet, and that will let some water out,” said Chris Terry, Grenada Lake’s natural resource manager. “That helped us out a lot, and I think that’s what kept us from going over.”
On Monday, lake officials opened the middle gate four and a  half feet, releasing 1,700 cubic feet of water per second.
