The Sabine River Authority said it is reducing spillway releases from Toledo Bend Reservoir as the lake level drops after a deluge of 18 inches fell this week directly into the lake and its tributaries.

The lake, which is not a flood control reservoir, rose to 174.36 inches across its 186,000 acres of surface. The lake is considered full at 172 feet above mean sea level.

On Friday, the level fell to 173.69 feet.

Nine gates at the spillway were open to 20 feet and one hydroelectic generator is running 24 hours a day for a total water release of 189,764 cubic feet per second, down from 207,000 cubic feet per second on Thursday.
