Lake levels cause concern

Forsyth County News
On July 29 I rode across the [Buford Dam] and the depth sign read “Lake Level 1071.74,” (indicting full pool) and the actual depth is 1055.00.
You remember the Corp installed this sign after their depth gauge “malfunctioned” and they released an extraordinary amount of much needed water from the lake. Earlier in the day I was informed by JOA at Holiday Marina that the lake level seemed to have dropped significantly over night. Is this another malfunction of the Corps equipment and are we in for another snafu?

Hopefully the Corp will find their error before they drain Lake Lanier dry.
