August 3, 2014 - At approximately 10:45 a.m., Tuolumne County emergency officials first received notification of leaks from a portion of the Twain Harte Lake Dam. This leak is occurring at a location where the dam interfaces with a large granite rock on the southern end of the dam. Water officials on site do not believe there is an eminent threat of failure of the dam. As a precautionary measure, approximately 2,000 gallons of water per minute is currently being released from Twain Harte Lake. At the same time, a commensurate amount of water is being released from the Phoenix Lake Reservoir which will receive the water from Twain Harte Lake. Some of this water will be absorbed into local streambeds (i.e. Twain Harte Creek and Sullivan Creek) and all remaining water will ultimately flow into Don Pedro Reservoir. 
These water releases will continue until the Twain Harte Lake level has been reduced by approximately ten feet in elevation. This will lower the lake level to a point below where the leak is occurring. Water officials estimate it will take two days to complete this process. During this time, local stream levels will be above normal summer flows but below normal winter storm flows. While no flooding is expected persons living along Twain Harte Creek and Sullivan Creek should avoid those water ways until further notice.
Twain Harte Lake will be closed until further notice. For general safety, the public is asked to avoid Twain Harte Lake and the surrounding area to give emergency personnel room to work.
For further information please call Incident PIO, Scott Johnson at (209-768-5829)
