Wednesday, December 12th, I stopped into the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers office in Hartwell, Georgia, and met with Ken Lloyd (one of the Rangers that work the southern part of the lake). Ken was very helpful in answering many of my questions regarding permits and their current status. I strongly suggest, if you have shoreline questions or issues, meet or call your assigned Ranger. They’re easy to work with and can save you time, headaches and money by educating you on the rules and guidelines for utilization of the Lake Hartwell shoreline.
After asking more than a dozen questions, I saved the best for last… Will the Lake be at “full pool” by April? Ken smiled and answered, “It depends on how much rain we get”. At least he didn’t say…“no”.
By the way, have you ever read the Shoreline Management Plan for Lake Hartwell? Click here for a copy.
