Water Level History

About Lay Lake

Lay Lake is a 12,000-acre reservoir located in central Alabama, United States. The lake was created by the construction of the Lay Dam, which was completed in 1914 and was the first dam built on the Coosa River. The dam was constructed primarily to generate hydroelectric power, and it continues to provide power to the region to this day. In addition to power generation, the lake is also a popular destination for fishing, boating, and other recreational activities. The Lay Dam and the lake it created have become important landmarks in the region and are cherished by locals and visitors alike.
