Downstream Levels (max gauge height for more Lake Monroe dam releases):
The annual lake reports (see above) include rates of outflow. To release more water than the minimum 200 cfs, downstream gauges have to read lower than minor flood stage, which is 20 feet in Bedford and Shoals, and 16 feet in Petersburg.
Levels of USGS gauges can be checked individually or all in one go.
