Lower Lake Cumberland levels could affect Dale Hollow

The decision to lower the level of Lake Cumberland to work on Wolf Creek Dam will causes some changes in the water elevation at Dale Hollow lake this summer.

Dale Hollow may maintain a higher than usual water level, which could then be dropped to a lower level later in the year. Lake Cumberland supplies water to the Cumberland River for a variety of purposes and that storage capability will be lost during work on the dam.

Dale Hollow will assume some of the responsibilities. The staff of Dale Hollow request visitors use caution due to the differing water levels.
