Storms Raise Lake Lanier’s Levels

The storms in early March brought tragedy to many communities and families in the South.  We send our condolences to all who suffered losses.  Lake Lanier was the beneficiary, however, of quite of bit of rainfall.  For that, we are thankful.

On Sunday, March 4th, the water level in Lake Lanier was 1,064.33 feet above sea level.  On February 20th, the lake was a foot lower.  Today’s level is 1,064.39, the highest it’s been in six months.

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Chief Ranger Ernest Noe says the corps can resume reviewing applications for dock permits on Lake Lanier.  Applications were suspended last September when the lake’s level dropped significantly.
