Lake Lanier Water Level

by Jay Hufnagel
Are you still concerned about Lake Lanier’s water level?
 
With the rain we’ve had lately many “Stakeholders and Concerned Citizens” have forgotten about the water crisis we face on Lake Lanier. Today there was an interesting article in the AJC by Stacy Shelton (Lanier’s return to full will be a long time coming). In the article she refers to some of the steps taken to reduce the flow out of the lake. 
 
In late February many of us (over 300) emailed the US Army Corps of Engineers about reducing the outflow of water from Lake Lanier into the Chattahoochee River. The Lake Lanier Association and now, the 1071 Coalition, have since been very pro-active in keeping the pressure on the Corps to keep reducing the outflow even more. And, maybe it’s working. Since the first of the year, it appears that the Corps has taken a more pro-active approach in managing the lake. Now’s not the time to let up.
 
Please consider emailing or writing to Governor Sonny Perdue, Senator Saxby Chambliss, saxby_chambliss@chambliss.senate.gov ,  and the US Army Corps of Engineers ( joseph.m.brabham@usace.army.mil ) to voice your continuing support for, in the words of the Lake Lanier Association, “a full & clean Lake Lanier”.
 
If you haven’t already, please visit the 1071 Coalition website and sign up to receive information on what more you can do.

Save our Lakes Now - Save Lake Hartwell, Russell, and Thurmond

by Jay Hufnagel

I wanted to draw your attention to this important petition that I recently signed: Please click on - Save our Lakes Now . I really think this is an important cause, and I'd like to encourage you to add your signature, too. It's free and takes less than a minute of your time.

For additional information on the "State of the Lake" please go to one of my latest Blogs (click here).

Also, I added my name to the subscriber list for the 1071 Coalition Group. This group represents a wide group of people interested in the water level, health and care of Lake Lanier in Georgia. Anything that we can do to support these causes helps keep our Southeastern Lakes clean and beautiful for our use and our children.

Thank you,

Jay Hufnagel
