LAKE LANIER, Ga. -- Thanks to almost eight inches of rain since the beginning of the year, Lake Lanier levels are now at the highest they've been in almost two years.

Even more impressive, just two months ago on December 15th, the Lake was at its lowest point in four years.

On December 15, levels were at just over 1056 feet. The lake has gained almost 10 feet of water since that point.

However, we still have a little over five feet to go before we make it to full pool, but given that March is typically our second wettest month of the year, we may just hit that goal for the start of summer.
