Lake Blalock Park remains closed

Monday, February 10, 2020

With the recent severe weather, Spartanburg Water is continuing to monitor conditions on Lake Blalock and Lake Bowen.  

Water levels have returned to normal levels in the reservoirs.  The landing at Lake Bowen opened on Saturday for normal activities. We are keeping the landing at Lake Blalock closed due to the storm related debris floating in the water. We are recommending that adjoining neighbors at Lake Blalock Reservoir refrain from boating and if it is necessary to do so, please be cautious and aware of your surroundings to any hazards.

Rain is in the weather forecast over the next week for the Spartanburg area, with potentially heavy thunderstorms. Since the watershed is saturated from the recent storms, please be aware that increased rain over the next few days could cause hazardous conditions in the reservoirs.

Some of our neighbors at Lake Bowen and Lake Blalock Reservoirs have experienced storm related damage to their dock or the buffer area. Our Watershed Management team is available to expedite the process if a dock requires maintenance, replacement or cleanup of storm debris and may be contacted at (864) 578-5442 or (864) 592-2240.
