Water levels

Recommended Posts

We've been inundated with rain for the last three months. After the drought of last summer, we're making up for that and a couple more. We have more water than we know what to do with here in Kentucky. I was just discussing the Atlanta situation (in the Fall) with someone yesterday. Has this rain been covering the Atlanta area as well? Are you guys back up to normal? I saw Justin made a comment that NorCal is low on water? Are you guys low or just low on good water?

Lakes are getting low to the point that middle to end of this summer lakes will start closing due to the ramps are out of the water. Here is a graph of a locate lake over the past couple of years. The water is good for skiing and such, just with a well below low snow/rainfall for two years in a row is really starting to plague our lakes. Next year will be critical for our water supply, we need a great winter.

Atlanta is getting some, but not like KY & here.

Lanier is up 6 or 7 feet from it's lowest point in Dec, but still 15 ft below normal.

They built the alaskan pipeline for oil, why not build one for water that would be great and would end all of our water problem. Too much in one place and not enough in others, would solve both problems.

Northern Nevada is hurting, one lake is closed becasue it is only 8' deep in the middle, should be about 30 - 40' Other lakes are low and you have to launch from the shore line.

Now that is a great idea, who can we talk into building it and how much do you think water will go up then? Thinking more about it, the pipe doesn't even have to be that big :)

I have a lot of different boards, you or anyone else is more than welcome to try them out and if you like one we can work out a deal I'm sure. Hyperlite Premier, Ronix One, Hyperlite State, and the Hyperlite Parks.
