Corps removes prohibition on use of security cameras at Lake Lanier

MOBILE, Ala. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Mobile District has removed security cameras from the list of items prohibited on permitted private floating facilities at Lake Sidney Lanier.

The decision follows a 30-day comment period that ended on June 16 where interested parties had an opportunity to submit comments for or against the use of security cameras. The comments received were overwhelmingly in favor of lifting the prohibition, 257 favorable versus seven opposed and five neutral. Based on received comments, the prohibition of cameras outlined in the Lake Sidney Lanier Shoreline Management Plan has been repealed.

Lake Lanier is federally owned and managed by the USACE Mobile District. If you have questions regarding this action, please contact the USACE Lake Sidney Lanier Shoreline Management Section at (770) 945-9531.
