Residents on Lake Martin are encouraged to begin securing permits for work on shoreline structures ahead of an additional drawdown this winter. The lake will begin lowering this fall and be down an extra 3 feet from Dec. 31, 2021 to Feb. 17, 2022 to provide residents and property owners more lakebed access for improvements and maintenance.

Beginning Sept. 2, the water level at Lake Martin is scheduled to gradually lower from its summer operating level near 491 feet to near 481 feet by New Year’s Eve. It will remain near 481 feet until Feb. 17, 2022. Lake levels will then slowly rise toward summer pool.

If operational conditions allow for the fall extension of Lake Martin water levels, the drawdown will begin Oct. 15.
