Let it rain: Forsyth exiting drought as Lake Lanier levels rise a foot in May
Mary Alice Park
This ramp at Mary Alice Park remains beached, though recent rains have increased the levels of the lake by more than a foot in the last month. According to officials, all boat ramps are usable when the levels reach 1,066. As of Tuesday, the level was at 1,064.24.
Though the last week of nearly constant rain may be dampening the spirits of many Forsyth County residents, Lake Lanier is one happy recipient after its water levels have increased by more than a foot since May 1.
