WILMINGTON, N.C. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Wilmington District updates water releases at Falls Lake.  Based on forecasts of impending rain coming in tonight, we are holding the current 5000 cubic feet per second (cfs) release from Falls for one more day and anticipate going to 6000 cfs on Friday, 5 May.   It is still critical that we go to 6000 cfs as soon as possible to minimize the overall basin flood risk.
