Glades Reservoir Project Update

Eight years ago this month, Hall County filed a Clean Water Act Section 404 Permit Application with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) in the Savannah District proposing the Glades Reservoir project.

The original project was for an 850-acre reservoir on Flat Creek that would yield of 6.4 million gallons per day (mgd).  That project was expected to meet the needs of northern and eastern Hall County (excluding areas served by the City of Gainesville Public Utilities) through 2060.

This application assumed that additional withdrawals from Lake Lanier will be allowed to meet the need for water in the areas served by the City of Gainesville.

The project website for the Glades Reservoir Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) provides background information on the proposed project, associated EIS documents.  You’ll also find information on the project’s scoping process and public involvement activities.

Please click on the link below for news about progress of the tasks associated with the EIS.

However, please don’t be surprised if the news is nothing more than updates on the latest delays in this insightful water conservation plan.

The next public hearings on the Glades Reservoir Project appear to be scheduled for September of 2015, subject to any necessary changes.
