Appalachian Power is reporting high water conditions on many of the rivers on which the company operates hydroelectric facilities. In some areas river flow increased a multiple of 10 times in just 12 hours. Where necessary, Appalachian Power officials notified emergency services organizations of water releases that are affecting downstream and lake conditions. None of the company’s facilities are constructed for flood control. However, efforts are being and have been made to attempt to assist in controlling flows downstream.
