Watercrunch has an interesting article about Lake Hartwell, a large lake near the Georgia-South Carolina border. The lake is continuing to drop, now sitting at 639.58′, which is well below the previous record low of 642.4′ set way back in 1981. Lake levels tend to be around 657′ in the winter.
There are even some countdowns underway, much like we had last year with Lanier. By some reports, there are only 300 days worth of water left. The lowest intake on the lake is at 620′, a level that could be reached by next fall.
They also included an interesting photo. The original bridge crossing for the Seneca River, which has been underwater since the lake was filled in the 1950s, is now coming back out again. See the picture below:
