Gatewood drops below spillway

Five months ago, steady rains had Gatewood Reservoir top its spillway for the first time since June 2008.
Now, the water level is headed back down again.
In an update to Pulaski Town Manager John Hawley Friday, Pulaski Engineering Technician Chase Duncan reported that the reservoir was down 2.18 feet. But even with the drop in water level, Duncan said the water level still remains above average based on levels recorded since 2006.
This spring Duncan reported that increased precipitation caused Gatewood to rise almost 29 feet between December 2008 and March. On Dec. 9 of last year, the lake registered a record low of 28.68 feet below full pond (58 feet).
Gatewood is the town’s primary water source, with Hogan’s Reservoir serving as its backup in the event of severe drought.
