The Cornelius Police Department Lake Patrol Division would like to warn boaters and personal watercraft users of the current low lake levels on Lake Norman. As of Friday, August 07, 2015, Lake Norman is 95.54, which is almost 4.5 feet below full pond.
Low lake levels create dangerous conditions as previously underwater obstacles appear on or near the surface. Lake Patrol recommends the use of a GPS or depth finder to help with navigating the lake safely. Extreme caution is advised to watch out for rocks and stumps that are now too close to the surface.
