Excessive rains have led to higher water levels in Truman and, at least for a short while longer, lower than normal levels at Lake of the Ozarks. According to a release from the Osage County Emergency Operations Center, Truman began generation on Monday and has been maintaining a 50,000 cfs discharge. Bagnell is at max generation of around 40,000 cfs. There is more rain in the forecast for the weekend and it remains possible that Bagnell could have to utilize floodgates in order to match the discharge rate from Truman. That decision will rely largely on the amount of rain received in the next couple of days. Lake of the Ozarks is expected to rise by 3-4 feet over the next week and reach full pool by Memorial Day weekend.
