Alabama Power is extending the summer pool on Lake Martin into the fall, giving residents more opportunities for boating and other recreation on the lake.

Due to local conditions, Alabama Power can maintain higher water levels at Lake Martin for a few additional weeks. Under the company’s federal operating license for Martin Dam, Alabama Power has the flexibility to extend the summer water levels at Lake Martin until mid-October, if conditions allow it.

In a normal year, the water level at Lake Martin begins to lower around Sept. 1, achieving winter pool levels near mid-November. The lower water level allows the reservoir to capture and store winter rains. The lake begins to rise again in early spring, reaching full summer level around the end of April.
