    Drove over it 4 days ago and looked as low as it did a year ago...
     

  3. Last year, I understood that it would be several years before the dam repairs would be complete so that the lake could be brought back to normal pool.
     
  4. Nothing has been announced yet, but most people are expecting the Corp. of Engineers to raise the lake level 10ft. higher than last year. The complete restoration of the dam is not scheduled to be completed until 2014. I wouldn't expect to see a full lake until then.

    Here's a great recent article about the lake and its level: Lake Cumberland
