Update on Lake Burton Water Quality

In the 2021 survey of our members, Water Quality was the number one concern. We heard you! Just because the water at our beautiful lake is down, the Board has kept up their efforts to fight for you and the lake. 

Here is a brief update on some of the highlights of our efforts as it relates to Water Quality: 
Our Next Steps
With all these recent developments on our lake, our Board has called in some professional environmental assistance to help us monitor water quality. Lake Burton is in the headwaters of the Savannah River. The Savannah Riverkeeper, a 501(c)(3), has agreed to begin working with the LBCA for the following: 

1) Hire a Savannah Riverkeeper employee who will live locally.
2) Work with state and local government to ensure compliance with permits, etc., and follow up on non-compliance.

The LBCA Board approved a donation to support and partner with the Savannah Riverkeeper's work.

Preserving Our Beloved Burton
We love Lake Burton and want to protect it for future generations. We see this as a necessary step in preserving the Burton legacy.

Thank you for being an engaged member of the LBCA. We will continue to keep you updated on our progress in this regard. 

See you on the lake!
