Information About Why Lake Peachtree is Looking Less Full
Lake Peachtree began filling up for the first time in 1957. It is a man-made lake and every 4 - 6 years it is lowered in the winter for maintenance. The lake is expected to begin filling back up in late March. What type of maintenance is needed?
This year it was decided to lowering the lake to help property owners on the western shore of the lake and to allow the city to analyze the Battery Way boat dock for future upgrades in infrastructure. Many of these property owners were needing to do some maintenance on their sea walls and docks. This type of maintenance is very difficult and often impossible to do with the water level being at normal height.
*We have posted pictures below with more information about the lake being lowered. We hope you find this information informative and useful. Enjoy!
