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”.
