  • Minor changes to underbrushing at Hartwell and Thurmond Lakes – 2016

    New rules in the Shoreline Use Permit (SUP) program at Hartwell Lake and J. Strom Thurmond Lake reduce the maximum size of trees or vegetation that can be removed within an authorized underbrush area associated with a SUP. The current SMP at Hartwell and Thurmond Lake allowed for removal of trees or vegetation up to 4 inches in diameter. The new SUP reduces the size to less than 3 inches in diameter for removal, underbrushing or cutting at Hartwell Lake and in Elbert and Abbeville counties at Thurmond Lake. Measurements will be taken at ground level.
