The Lake Lanier Association Announces New Executive Director

Jennifer Flowers, Executive Director,Lake Lanier Association, Gainesville, GA

Monday, July 15, 2019

The Lake Lanier Association has concluded its 2-month search for a new Executive Director! Today we are announcing Jennifer Flowers as the new Executive Director for the Lake Lanier Association. Jennifer is a local Hall County resident with the education, work experience and competence to become a great asset for our Association. She comes to us from the City of Gainesville Department of Water Resources and shares our passion for Lake Lanier and preserving our natural resources”, states John Barker, President of the LLA.

Jennifer’s credentials are impressive – A UGA graduate with a B.S. in Ecology, a Masters of Environmental Law and Policy from Vermont Law School and 10 years of experience working in the water resources field. In addition, she was accepted into the 2019 class for the Institute for Georgia Environmental Leadership.

I believe Lake Lanier is the most important resource for the surrounding communities and arguably all of Metro Atlanta. It is an economic driver for regional opportunities for recreation, area development and drinking water for residents and industries. Without Lake Lanier, the region and state would not be what they are today; which is why I am thrilled to be in this new role.” said Jennifer.

Lake Lanier Association has worked for 50+ years to protect the Lake and initiatives of the organization including Shore Sweep, removing abandoned and derelict boats and docks, water quality testing, boater education campaigns, Solar Lights for hazard markers and Rip Rap to control island soil erosion.

I am looking forward to the journey and contributing to the current and future initiatives of the Lake Lanier Association. I am excited to begin working with the very committed Board of Directors, volunteers, and community leaders of North Georgia to preserve a CLEAN FULL SAFE Lake Lanier”, said Jennifer Flowers.

ALERT – Quickly Rising Water Levels – February 22, 2019

This morning, the Chattachoochee and Chestatee Rivers are flowing at a combined 8,440 cubic feet per second, and the discharge at Buford Dam is 583 cfs, for a net inflow into Lake Lanier of 7,857 cfs, not counting rain falling onto the surface of the lake, inflow from minor tributaries, and direct inflow from the shoreline.
The lake has risen more than 3 feet since last Friday, and more than 1.5 feet since yesterday morning.
With perhaps another 0.75″ of rain forecast for today and Saturday, and with the ground already fully saturated, the lake will continue to rise significantly, and could easily rise another 6-12″ over the weekend.
Check your dock poles and shore anchor lines to make sure your dock doesn’t break free from its moorings.

ALERT – Two More Abandoned Docks – Please Look At The Photos

We have two more docks that have been abandoned along the shoreline of Lake Lanier and we are trying to identify the owners of these docks in order to determine the removal and disposition plan for these eyesores and safety hazards from Lake Lanier.One is close to Duckett Mill Park and the other is just above the Wahoo Creek/Mt. Vernon Road bridge. Both docks have been at their current locations for multiple weeks. Please look at the photos and brief descriptions below. If you know anything about either of these docks, please contact the Lake Lanier Association to help us in our investigation. Your identity will be treated as confidential.
The first dock is a single slip Quonset hut style dock. It is partially dismantled and is currently located very close to the boat ramp at Duckett Mill park.
The second dock is a single slip with upper deck dock. It is currently located on the northeastern shoreline area above the Wahoo Creek bridge. We think this dock got to its current spot from a location farther north on Wahoo Creek.
