Full Lake

The water level of Lake Lanier is of great concern to
property owners, business owners, residents,
and users of Lake Lanier.


Lake Lanier Association puts considerable time and dollars into staying informed and engaged with all aspects of the legal activity surrounding the water level and where it is relative to full. The 10-year average water elevation shows the annual average curve of water levels at Lanier.


LLA stays in close contact with the Corps of Engineers regarding their operating procedures at Lanier. By making sure we keep ourselves and our members educated and up-to-date about lake operations, we enable our organization to influence change where possible.
