Many water lovers will be getting their last days of the year on the lake this Labor Day weekend, but at Lake Martin they can enjoy higher lake levels for a few more weeks.

Higher-than-normal rainfall this summer will enable Alabama Power to keep the level of Lake Martin higher for a few extra weeks into the fall.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s new 30-year license for Martin Dam allows the company to extend summer water levels at Lake Martin into mid-October, when conditions allow it.Water levels at Lake Martin and Lake Harris, on the Tallapoosa River, and Weiss, Logan Martin and Neely Henry lakes on the Coosa River, as well as water flows in the Coosa and Tallapoosa river basins, are the factors evaluated by the company to determine whether higher levels can be maintained at Lake Martin beyond Sept. 1.
