Gatewood Reservoir tops spillway

Three months after reaching a record low depth, Gatewood Reservoir topped the spillway Monday.
It was the first time since early June of last year that the lake has been deep enough to make it over the spillway, according to Pulaski Engineering Technician Chase Duncan.
Thanks to an increase in precipitation this winter, Duncan said the lake has risen almost 29 feet since Dec. 9, when it registered a record low of 28.68 feet below full pond. It has risen more than four feet since last Monday.
The declining water level prompted Pulaski Town Council to consider, late last year, imposing water use restrictions. However, council decided to monitor the reservoir and impose restrictions only in the event of an emergency.
Significant rain and snow since January prevented the need for restrictions.
Gatewood is the town’s primary water source, with Hogan’s Reservoir serving as its backup in the event of severe drought.
