Duke Energy makes Lake Robinson information available
Duke Energy has made information on Lake Robinson available through the Lake View mobile app and on its lake information webpage.
Last year, Duke Energy released its Lake View app to provide information, including lake levels and scheduled flow releases, for lakes and rivers managed by the company. The app covers Lake Keowee and Lake Jocassee in the Keowee-Toxaway basin as well as other Duke Energy-managed lakes and rivers. Due to local interest, Lake Robinson has been added to this list beginning in fall 2020.
Lake Robinson is a 2,250-acre lake in Chesterfield and Darlington Counties. The lake was created by the Company in 1960 with construction of the dam, which impounded Black Creek. The original purpose of the lake was to provide cooling water for what was Robinson unit 1, a coal plant that was retired in 2012. Since Robinson Nuclear Plant began operating, the lake has provided cooling water for that plant. It also serves as a recreational lake for the community.
The free app is available at Google Play and the App Store. Search “Duke Energy Lake View” and download. Information is also available online.
