You are both correct and thanks for your response. Of course, with the variation of lake level the shoreline will shrink or expand. 26 miles is an average. When Nantahala Power and Light had control, it was said to be 26 miles. Duke took it over and did a satelite imagery topo showing some differences/ expansions. One house that our office had listed showed an encroachment in the search from Duke. It became a mess.
Look for my next trivia question for Lake Glenville coming soon.
You can view that stat, and others about the lake on the Friends of Lake Glenville website here:
Let me know if I can provide any other area info, or help in any way!
Glenville Lake is a Duke Energy project. They have engineering maps at http://www.duke-energy.com/lakes/nantahala/lake-maps.asp which shows surveyed shoreline as 27.8 miles. Of course the shoreline fluctuates based on the lake levels. Lake Glenville Actual: 97.2; Target: 92.1; Min. 89.0; Max. 95.0 http://www.duke-energy.com/lakes/levels/annualrange.asp?lake If you appreciate an answer, please give thumbs up.
