The Year of the Lakes

Record #:
North Carolina, which only a few years ago had no lakes west of the Bladen group, now has dozens of large ones, and four more are about to added. The lake created by the Tuckertown dam should be full this spring, measuring seven miles long, containing 3,000 acres, located on the Yadkin between Stanly and Montgomery Counties. Other new lakes will follow, Including Lake Norman on the Catawba, and the lake created by the Gaston Dam of Vepco on the Roanoke River.
