The lake was at about 332.7 mean sea level, as of 3 p.m. Friday, and could be dropped another three feet through normal spillway operations, Harrell said. At that point, workers will remove the plug from the intentional breach and, through a controlled flow, drop the lake level another six to eight feet, he said. “As for what that will mean for the downstream flow, there really should be little to no effect,” Harrell said. “The cut (breach) will have less discharge than what’s going through the spillway right now, so you shouldn’t see any additional effect there in Louisiana.”
Most of the residents within a half mile of the river evacuated Thursday, but many of them have started to return, Burgess said late Friday morning. “We would like for them to stay out at least 24 more hours,” Burgess said. He said that would give workers a chance to further reduce the water levels in the reservoir. There is still a danger that the dam will fail, he said.
