In April, I wrote that there were worring signs for Lake Lanier water levels.
Two months on and the news from Lake Lanier is mixed.
The lake entered the spring several feet lower than in 2011 and 2010, although better than the really bad drought years that preceded it.
We’ve dropped one foot in the last two months and the lake is now just over 6 feet below full pool.
We now enter the time of year when lake levels often start to drop more quickly. Here’s a recap of June to November in recent years:
So, on average, the lake drops over 4 feet between now and November. If Lanier drops that far, the lake will be down 10 feet going into the winter.
However, let’s note two things:
I have a lot At Chesapeake point which my wife and I was hoping to build on for uour retirement We have not seen water at our dock for at least 6 to 8 months and then previous to that obviously the year if during the draft we do not know what to do I understand that there is a program in place called the 1073 program but I cannot get an answer on If and when this might take affect?

That’s very sad to hear about. This is really a situation to think deeply with proper case study, and effective plans must be made to overcome this problem soon. This falling of water level is not only due to the drought condition, but also due to our habit of wasting water. So, we must try to preserve and save as much of water as we can to ensure that water level won’t decrease from now onwards.
