Rainfall helping Georgia’s Lake Lanier

Heavy rain in the Atlanta area is helping fill Lake Lanier, which has seen low levels due to several years of drought.

Before the deluge, Lanier had fallen to 1,064.2 feet above sea level. A week later, Lanier's water level is at 1,067.7, with an increase of another foot predicted, according to information on LakeLanier.com.

Overall, the recent weather bodes well for Lake Lanier during the coming months. Climatologists had already been predicting it might rise to a full pool of 1,071 feet, perhaps in early 2010, according to the article.
