LAKE SIDNEY LANIER — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has been forced to close numerous parks and boat ramps around Lake Lanier due to the high water levels caused by all of the recent rainfall.

Lanier’s full pool is 1,071.00 feet and as of Feb. 16, 2020, the current water level is at 1,076.29 feet.  The record high for Lake Lanier was set in April 1964 when it measured 1,077.2 feet.

Private entities around the lake are also being impacted.  People are being urged to make sure their docks are properly secured and that any power running to docks are completely shut off while water levels are high.  Docks have been breaking loose and floating out into the lake creating hazards for boaters.  In addition to docks on the loose, boaters are urged to slow down and watch for logs and other debris that may have made its way into the lake.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has closed the following parks and ramps due to the high water levels.

    Are ramps/parks closed (or open) b/c of Coronovirus…..?
