The damnest thing to me is how much water would the damn mussels have if Buford Dam hadn't been built? The answer is they would be dried up! There would be no water! The Chattahooche would be a little creek! The capitol was spent here to have a resivoir...why should we have to cator to Al and Fl?????

Lake Powell is 100.96 feet below Full Pool (Elevation 3,700)

By content, Lake Powell is 47.93% of Full Pool (24,322,000 af)


Lake Mead is 108.59 feet below Full Pool (Elevation 1219.60 )

By content, Lake Mead is 48.31% of Full Pool (25,877,000 af)

The people here posting from GA I'm sure are aware of this however for you out-of-towners.... an interesting fact is, there is a town at the bottom of Lake Lanier.

We will receive a bunch of rain in the spring and everything will be fine.

If its not too low.......its too high. Check out my boat ramp er driveway, we lost 2/3 of the summer. Our house is the far one. It was the same in the back yard.

I think most large man-made lakes have at least one town they had to flood. LOTO has its share. Actually left some rail cars and such at the bottom near the dam that were brought up when the country needed metal for WWII.

Anyone standing around down there at Lake Lanier with concrete boots??
