Lake Peachtree being lowered for maintenance

If you’ve taken a peek at Lake Peachtree over the past few days, don’t let the lower level cause alarm: it’s being done on purpose.

The lowering of the waterline will allow property owners along the lake to maintain their shoreline and docks along the lake. It’s expected the lake will remain low for approximately two months, with the lake level set to rise back up in late March, officials said.

The lowering of the lake will also allow the city to take a look at the Battery Way boat dock, which will be considered for a future upgrade as part of the city’s focus on infrastructure.

Quit, give up, or surrender. No matter how you say it, I’ve had enough and I’m doing it.
