High Rock Lake Water Levels

(WSTP Salisbury)  With all of the rain that has fallen this week High Rock is almost at full pool.  Actually it is six inches from the Flood Pool.   With the high water levels, moving currents make it  dangerous to enter the water in otherwise safe swimming and boating areas.  Boaters should also be aware the strong currents can overpower small outboards or boats that have engine troubles forcing them aground causing damage.
