Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Carter's Reservoir, located near Carter's, GA, was created in 1977 as a result of the construction of the Carters Dam. The dam was built to control flooding and provide a source of hydroelectric power to the area. The reservoir is fed by the Coosawattee River and has a capacity of 445,000 acre-feet. The hydrology of the reservoir is influenced by both surface flow and snowpack from the nearby Appalachian Mountains. The reservoir is used for agricultural irrigation and is also a popular location for recreational activities such as fishing and boating. In recent years, there has been a push for increased regulation of the lake due to concerns about water quality and the impact of agricultural practices on the surrounding ecosystem.
