As of May 20, 2012, the Corps will suspend the review of upgrades to existing private docks and permit requests for new private docks.
The Corps is also directing its park ranger staff to promote water safety on Lake Lanier. Rangers will speak personally with visitors and will diligently patrol the lake to keep it as safe as humanly possible.
Deputy Public Affairs Officer Lisa Coghlan said “We regret any inconvenience this may cause, but it is important to be able to shift available staff to assist project visitors during the peak recreation season. We expect that we will need all available park rangers until some point after the Labor Day holiday.”
We are grateful to the Army Corps of Engineers for their faithful service to the 7.5 million people who visit Lake Lanier each year.
