I was surprised to see how low Lanier has dropped in the past few months. That makes sense because its a continental system: it peaks in spring, unlike the southern peninsula that has its annual water crest in the fall … (usually).
And discharge rates out of Woodruff have dropped back down comprable to last summer’s record low.
The difference is — I think — that the Apalachicola is getting more tributary flow than last year, and isn’t 100 perecent dependent on flow from its Lanier-fed mainstem.
Depending on what way Fay turns, it could help steer Lanier’s water balance back up in the positive direction.
