    You math is a little off. 1069.02 is 2 feet, not 2 inches below summer pool. Would be nice to keep the level closer to 1071 this time of year. We have had plenty of rain the past month.

      Hi.

      Thanks. You are correct, of course.

      I corrected the story.

      Thanks again,

    Robert… really? “As far as I can tell, Lanier’s lowest levels hit on December 18 & 19, 2012, when we sunk down to 1056.33 — 13.77 feet below full pool.” Then highlighted in your own article a few lines later: 2008: 1055.89.
    And in about 30 seconds on my Smartphone I have; lakelanier.com – Historical Water Level Data, “the record low level of the lake occurred in December of 2007 when the lake fell to an elevation of 1050.79 ft, approximately 20 feet below it full level.
    Do a little homework!

      Dear cmp1321@gmail.com,

      Thanks for pointing out my error in the story about Lake Lanier water levels.

      You were correct. Please pardon my mistake.

      Thanks,
