Lake Hartwell Association Meeting

I briefly attended the annual Lake Hartwell Association meeting last night at the Anderson County Civic Center. Obviously, the prominent topic of discussion was the current drought and water levels. The Army Corps of Engineers has adjusted the criteria for water release rates for all the lakes on the Savannah River Basin. Hopefully these adjustments will help us up here.

Other hot topics with the lake residents are:
-property tax reform
-encourage the water compact between Georgia & South Carolina
-proper use of the PCP settlement funds by DNR
-boat noise regulation
