Lanier Marine Liquidators wants you to recognize the functions of Lake Lanier. A major function of Lake Lanier is flood control. Lanier Marine Liquidators points out that during times of heavy rainfall, runoff waters are stored in Lake Lanier to help prevent flooding downstream of Buford Dam. Later, after the heavy rains have subsided, floodwaters stored in the lake can be released through the Powerhouse in a more controlled manner.
Lanier Marine Liquidators believes that the lakes floodwater storage capacity is acceptional. Lake Lanier has the floodwater storage capacity to rise 14 feet above its full level to prevent downstream flooding. The highest the lake has been to date was in 1964 when the lake reached over 6 feet above it’s full level.
