Update: May 25, 2018, 11:45 AM
Due to recent area rain and in preparation for the expected rainfall amounts we are currently doing a controlled drawdown of Lake Blackshear. We expect to drop the lake approximately two feet.
We do not anticipate any issues with the lake level based on current Flint River forecast flows. We will continue to monitor the Flint River and Lake Blackshear levels and will make adjustments as necessary.
