Call for Volunteers — Shore Sweep 2017 Advance Shoreline Scouting!

The Lake Lanier Association needs help with advance scouting of lake shoreline prior to our Shore Sweep event which will be held on Saturday, September 23rd, 2017. Advance scouting reports help us to more effectively dispatch volunteers on the day of the event. We are asking for volunteers to scout by boat different sections of shoreline and report back to us locations where trash and debris is sighted. You need a boat – probably a motor powered one, no kayaks or canoes for this one, and you need a smart phone or mobile device with the TrashOut app loaded on it. To get the TrashOut app, search for TrashOut in the app store. It is a free download. Once you have TrashOut on your device, set your profile to affiliate with the Lake Lanier Association organization. Once that is done, you are ready for scouting! If you are interested in signing up to be a scout, please click the below link for more information and the sign up form for the different scouting routes. Thank you for supporting the Lake Lanier Association and the Shore Sweep event!

CALL TO ACTION: EPD Drought Response Needs to Consider Lake Lanier Water Level

Member call to action! Please contact our state Environmental Protection Division and urge them to keep the Level 2 Drought Response in place until Lake Lanier gets closer to its full pool! The EPD is considering lifting the Level 2 Drought Response currently in place since Metro Atlanta is no longer officially in a drought. The problem with this approach is that it doesn’t consider that residual drought impacts on Lake Lanier can continue for long after the official drought is over since it can take some time for Lake Lanier to regain its full pool water level. Below is the press release the Lake Lanier Association has sent to media outlets. Members – the EPD needs to hear from you! Use your own words and either email or call the EPD at askepd@gaepd.org or 404-657-5947. Time is of the essence since they will be making a decision soon.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Security Camera Prohibition Removed on Lake Lanier!

Great news! Security camera prohibition lifted at Lake Lanier! Special thank you to Congressman Rob Woodall for his involvement in getting this policy reviewed!
