Local stakeholders share opinions
Local stakeholders Tuesday said they are “guardedly optimistic” that Lake Martin’s winter pool level will be raised to 484 feet (mean sea level) after Alabama Power Company made public their recent answer to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) final information request.
“Our understanding is that all of the evidence indicates this thing could be approved,” said Lake Martin Resource Association president John Thompson.
Lake Martin’s Home Owner and Boat Owner Association president Dave Heinzen said the report is great news. He is looking hopefully forward to the commission’s approval of the power company’s proposal for the higher water level.
