Published Aug. 28, 2014

MOBILE, Ala. - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers(USACE), Mobile District announces that Lake Sidney Lanier has completed the dock lottery process begun in 2009.  After completion of the lottery it was determined that additional permits may be issued. The Shoreline Management Section at Lake Lanier will begin accepting requests for new dock permits on September 16, 2014.

Requests will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis beginning September 16 after 8:30 a.m. local time. Requests received before this time will not be accepted. All requests must be made to the Shoreline Management Help Desk only on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays at 770-945-9531 ext. 3262.  Walk-In requests will also be accepted on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.  

Once reviewed, applicants will have 90 days to submit ALL required documentation or their application will be purged, and they will go to the end of the line. Once Lake Lanier reaches the equivalent of 10,615 permits, no further requests will be accepted. Reviews may be placed on hold at any time to ensure the cap on permits is not exceeded, and an appointment does not guarantee a permit will be issued. Under no circumstances should any applicant place any facility or perform any modification of public lands or waters without a permit.
