Recently we’ve been seeing multiple articles on Lake Lanier water levels and how they may drop to record lows in the coming months.  Stacy Shelton of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution wrote Thursday, October 11, 2007, that state and local officials reported that Lake Lanier has about three months of storage left.

 

Wow, that’s scary. If that doesn’t wake people up now on how important Lake Lanier is to the people that depend on it, I don’t know what will. Up until recently, the main source of concern was coming from Lake Lanier property owners and the Lake Lanier Association. After reading the latest articles, it appears that millions of people in and around Atlanta, plus Alabama could be affected. Isn’t it about time that we, as interested parties in the future of Lake Lanier, find out what we can do to have a say in it’s future.

 

I’m urging my Lake and Home Realty blog readers that know who the decision makers are within the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, to respond with their names, telephone numbers and email addresses so we can share our suggestions and concerns for the welfare of the lake.

 

Eventually, the rains will come, and the lake will start to fill up again. Let’s be proactive now, so we can sustain a “full” lake in the future.
