Your Views: Push to raise Laniers level based on costs
Placeholder Image
In response to a concern about our push to increase the full pool of Lake Lanier to 1,073 feet: While we don’t like to see public recreation areas and personal property compromised by high water levels, it is very instructive to see what the effects of 1,073 are on the surrounding lake areas. Those familiar with the operating procedures for the ACF System know that the pressure to keep the flow of fresh water continuing — from parties within Georgia as well as Alabama and Florida — is not expected to ease anytime soon. Nor are we aware of any upcoming revisions to the Endangered Species Act that will substantially change how the corps and Fish and Wildlife Service operate.
