Now that the unusually high water is receding, more USACE parks reopened on Lanier.
Our pals with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Mobile District, are warning boaters that high water impacts boating and recreational facilities at Lake Sidney Lanier.
It might stop raining someday. Until that day, we’ll hear from the US Army Corps of Engineers about how high water closes Lake Lanier boat ramps.
It’s not often that Lake Lanier rises beyond full winter pool. As of Tuesday, January 8, 2019, we’re more than four feet above that high water mark.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) at Lake Lanier will reopen their Lower Pool West Park to the public on Thursday, June 14th.
Do you remember when Lake Lanier was so low that parks were closed? Well, the lake is at record levels in June of 2018. High water has closed some parks. Here’s the map of open parks on Lake Lanier.
In a move that will delight snail darters downstream, the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) says they’ll be releasing water from Buford Dam in order to lower the level of Lake Lanier.
Rain from the storm named Alberto is still falling and much more water will soon drain into Lanier. The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) says closures on Lake Lanier are taking place, with more to come.
The recent, daily, incessant, constant, unstoppable, nagging rain might be annoying, but at least Lake Lanier is full of water! The lake has risen more than four feet this month.
The Sustainable Water Management Plan for Lake Lanier isn’t exactly “new” news, but it is back in the news as the Water Wars continue in the U.S. Supreme Court.
