Helpful Links & Phone Nos. for Water Generation Info
To find out the current Table Rock Lake level, Taneycomo Lake level and what is generating at the time of your call, contact: 1-417-336-5083. Taneycomo normal tailwater level is 701.6 to 702.0

Phone: 1-866-494-1993, or check the website: www.swpa.gov Click on “Generation Schedule” listed under “Scheduling and Operations” in the center of the page. Then, click on the day of the week in which you are interested. Normally, you can only get the next day’s projection at 4:30 p.m. the day before. The exception is over the weekend. You can get Saturday, Sunday and Monday projections at 4:30 p.m. on Friday.
In addition to calling or looking at the website for water generation projections, we also look at the previous days history to see what the generation history/trend has been. With all conditions remaining consistent, i.e. no rise in the Table Rock Lake level or major extremes in weather, the trend can be a good indicator of what might happen. Check out http://www.swl-wc.usace.army.mil/pages/real_time_data.htm Click on the first “Graphic” for Reservoirs. Then select the Reservoir you want, i.e. Table Rock, to see the past several days history. There is lots of interesting and informative information on this site.
