LEWIS CREEK DAM UPDATE

Early this morning, the company performed inspections of the Lewis Creek dam with a geotechnical engineer and has confirmed that the dam remains intact.

“We performed visual inspections this morning and confirmed the repairs and protective measures put in place the past few days are intact,” said Sallie Rainer, president and CEO of Entergy Texas. “The inspection revealed one area with slight soil movement but we are confident in the materials and equipment we have on site to make the repair.”

The slight soil movement was not unexpected and will be covered with protective covering today. The company will continue to work around the clock with remediation efforts.

Today, the company notified the Midcontinent Independent System Operator, the reliability coordinator for Entergy, that Lewis Creek units 1 and 2 are now available to resume normal operations.
