Albany -- As the drought worsens, water levels on the Kinchafoonee Creek are reaching near record lows. 

Back in 1986, the creek near Dawson reached a record low of 2.2 feet.  Friday afternoon, the level was 2.3 feet.

Burton Roberts has lived on the creek for 30 years. He says though the water is lower than he'd like, he still sees people out fishing and boating.  But he's hoping for relief.  

"If it don't rain, it will probably get lower. But we've seen it lower than this and we've sure enough seen it higher. We need rain real bad sure do. And none in sight as I know. So it's really dry out here," Roberts says.

Flood stage of the Kinchafoonee at Dawson is 13 feet. The weather service begins issuing flood warnings at 10 feet.

During the flood of 94, the creek reached 26 feet.
