Army Corps Declares Victory After Filling Lanier; Opens Floodgates To Celebrate

About a week after finally getting Lake Lanier to full pool for the first time in years, the Army Corps of Engineers has decided the lake has too much water.
Yep, that’s right. Our (for the next 3 years) cup runneth over.

Heavy rain is expected Friday, so they’re going to drop the lake 18 inches to prepare for it. Should make for good surfing below Buford Dam.

    Wow, this is like the city of Atlanta finding “extra” money in the budget and rushing to spend it right away!
