SAVANNAH, Ga. – The National Weather Service is forecasting high-intensity localized rainfall in several parts of the Savannah River Basin today and tomorrow, which is expected to result in higher inflows for the three major reservoirs: Hartwell, Richard B. Russell and Thurmond. Hydrologists at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Savannah District, who manage the reservoirs said that the upper Savannah River Basin is in a good position to safely capture and retain excess runoff originating upstream of Thurmond Dam because of the current mild drought condition in the basin.
