100 Foot Rule Postcard

November 7th, 2018 Posted by Safe Lake 0 comments on “100 Foot Rule Postcard”

LLA is kicking off a boating safety campaign in 2019 related to awareness of the 100 foot rule. This postcard is the first piece of that campaign and we will start distributing these postcards at the boat show in January – along with some other swag related to this same concept. Can’t wait to get these out into the community!

September 1st, 2018 Posted by Clean Lake 0 comments on “Advance Drop sites are now open!”

The Shore Sweep advance drop locations are now open and will remain open until the evening of Friday, 9/14/18. You can leave bagged trash or large debris at these sites during this time and we will send a crew to pick up at the Shore Sweep event on 9/15. Please be sure to leave the debris high enough or tied off so that it doesn’t float back out into the water. Look for the banners posted and leave the debris close to the banner. Please do NOT use these sites for trash drop off other times of the year outside of our authorized advance drop location window.

Water Wars: The Supreme Court Dodges A Decision

June 28th, 2018 Posted by Full Lake 0 comments on “Water Wars: The Supreme Court Dodges A Decision”

The Supreme Court issued its long-awaited ruling on the Florida v. Georgia lawsuit wherein Florida sought an equitable apportionment of the waters in the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River Basin. Florida claimed that Georgia’s excessive use of water harmed the Apalachicola Bay environmental and fishing industries with a primary emphasis on the oyster industry in the bay.

Today, the Supreme Court remanded the case back to the Special Master with clear instructions to establish more detailed information as to the nature – and amounts – of any harm claimed by Florida.

Equitable apportionment legal precedents require establishing not only the general nature of harm but a balancing of the harm to one state to achieve a benefit to another. The dissent clearly shows the actual harm that would occur to Georgia compared to the potential benefit to Florida of a cap on Georgia’s water consumption.

The Lake Lanier Association believes that the dissent written by Justice Clarence Thomas presents persuasive facts that were ignored by the majority opinion.

Lake Lanier is the water resource that benefits the entire state of Georgia and all downstream water users, including Florida. Having a sustainable Lake Lanier for the future is critical for all water users.

We look forward to continuing to make the case for the recreation economy, not only for the counties surrounding Lake Lanier but also for the state of Georgia, and to working with stakeholders in Georgia, Florida, and Alabama to promote the Sustainable Water Management Plan (SWMP) developed by the ACF Stakeholders organization.
