Shoreline Use Permits change at Hartwell and Thurmond Lakes – 2016

Published Dec. 28, 2015

New rules in the Shoreline Use Permit (SUP) program at Hartwell Lake and J. Strom Thurmond Lake will no longer allow the use of a consolidated permit and license effective Jan. 1, 2016. All new SUPs and licenses and all future renewals will require separate forms. This change brings Savannah District reservoir projects into compliance with South Atlantic Division regulations.* 

These changes apply to individuals have a SUP or apply for one at either Hartwell Lake or Thurmond Lake. Current SUPs will be honored until they expire.

In addition, anyone who applies for a SUP or a license must provide a taxpayer identification number (TIN), as required by federal law.** For most citizens the Social Security number is the TIN. Businesses and corporations, including LLCs, have a separate TIN. The TIN information will not be stored or transmitted electronically.
