        In the video posted it said that all buildings were removed form the lake bed before it began to fill up. I thought I heard that there were some buildings still below the surface that divers can tour, one being a movie theater. Am I mistaken?

          No buildings, just some foundations and crumbled walls.

              Lake is down over a foot in five days of generations. The generations have been four hour bursts of either 67 or 127 max release around the clock with the exception of this past weekend. If they follow the same pattern and release over the weekend, I could see in two weeks the generations will slow down. If they do straight 67 release on the weekend it may add an additional two to three days of generation on top of the two weeks I mentioned above. That is also barring the lake picking up any significant rain. This coming weekend so far they are only forecasting 1/2in of rain. Beyond that it is too far out to get an accurate forecast.

                Anybody know what these kind of releases do to the river? My experience on the UT is pretty limited but I was noticing a lot of silt building up below 400 between mid-July and October. Is there going to be more in that area or would this possibly scour some off the bottom and dump it below MF?

                  Only 2.6 feet to go. Unfortunately it looks like browniez guess of Feb 1 is going to be pretty accurate
