The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will suspend evaluation of permit requests for new private docks on Lake Lanier.

The suspension, taking effect Sunday, also affects requests for upgrades to existing private docks, according to a corps news release Monday.

“This action is in response to a number of serious boating accidents and water-related deaths on Lake Lanier this year,” the release states.

The corps “is refocusing all available park ranger staff to promote water safety through one-on-one contact with lake visitors.”

Spokeswoman Lisa Coghlan said, “We regret any inconvenience this may cause, but it is important to be able to shift available staff to assist project visitors during the peak recreation season.

“We expect that we will need all available park rangers until some point after the Labor Day holiday period.” For more information, contact 770-945-9531.
