Patoka Lake and Downstream Hammered by Recent Heavy Rain

Dubois County (NNDC):


Recent heavy rain and more on the way have forced changes in usual water release procedures from Patoka Lake.

Cuzco Road South will be closed and enforced by law enforcement due to possible overflow issues.

Local departments are coordinating together to maintain Public Safety in Dubois County.

With the anticipated forecast of additional rainfall over the next few days, discharge at Patoka Lake will increase.  The Emergency Spillway is doing what it is designed to do which is lesson the impact of downstream flooding.

 Keeping Public Safety in mind Cuzco Road South which is located adjacent to the spillway will be closed from 450 N to 330 N until further notice.  Absolutely no traffic will be permitted in this area and this will be enforced by Law Enforcement.
