The CORPS continues to pull water almost 24/7 to get lake levels down to normal full pool. The lake is 1,072.56, or 1.56 feet above the normal full pool of 1,071. Lake surface temperatures are in lower 80s, while the main-lake and lower-lake creek mouths are clear to stained. The upper-lake creeks, pockets and the rivers are stained to very stained. The heavy afternoon showers continue to add water to Lake Lanier. The CORPS is still running water through Buford Dam 24 hours a day due to the high lake levels. During water generation, it’s unsafe to be on the river or to fish from the bank below Buford Dam. Check generation schedules before heading to the river by calling 770-945-1466.
