Lake Chehaw drawdown begins

October 8, 2004

Leesburg-- Homeowners on Lake Chehaw have more than a month to do any repair work or other construction on their docks.

That's because Georgia Power began lowering the water level Friday.

The lake will be lowered ten feet, but residents have to get a permit from Georgia Power before any projects on the shoreline can be done.

The fall drawdown is anticipated to last until November 15th, but could last even longer depending on water flow.
