GEOA POWE5B77 : Why is water level at Lake Oliver so low? There's a good answer

Oct. 11--If you have driven past Lake Oliver in the past week and were wondering if the lake was a little low, it is.

And will remain that way for the remainder of the month.

Georgia Power began the process to draw down Lake Oliver and Goat Rock Lake on Sept. 28, said Robert Watkins, a spokesman for the utility.

"We took it down 3 feet," Watkins said on Monday. "It doesn't have to be down far for the land to extend out into the lake bed."

The purpose of the draw down is to allow owners of docks and seawalls to make necessary repairs, Watkins said. Plans call for the lakes to remain below normal pools until the end of the October.

Oliver and Goat Rock are lowered every other year to allow the repairs. Every third year, Lake Harding the northernmost of the three Georgia Power lakes in north Columbus and Harris County, is lowered to allow property owners to make repairs on their docks and seawalls.

Property owners seeking to repair existing structures or build new ones, have to receive a permit from Georgia Power, Watkins said.

"There is a lot of work done during this time because it is much easier," Watkins said.
