With more than 690 miles of shoreline, the lake is well known for its aqua-blue colored water, spectacular scenery and unique recreational activities. Constructed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in the 1950s, Lake Lanier is a multi-purpose lake that is authorized for flood protection, power production, water supply, navigation, recreation and fish and wildlife management.

The LLA and the Corps of Engineers work closely together to ensure Lake Lanier is protected and preserved for generations to come. LLA and the Corps often meet to discuss the status of important projects, concerns and issues around Lanier. LLA has also worked with the Corps to produce informative Ask the Corps Webinars and articles for our quarterly newsletter, the Lanier Outlook.
