These volumes are considered accurate to within 5%. Comparison with volumes determined in 1941, when the reservoirs were filled, shows decreased in volume of 73,000 acre-ft in Lake Marion and 30,000 acre-ft in Lake Moultrie. These changes in volume, however, are subject to relatively large possible error because they represent relatively small differences between relatively [...]
