BUFORD — Area government and utility leaders appeared to be leaning Wednesday toward state environmental officials taking the lead in developing a water quality plan for Lake Lanier. However, without taking any formal votes, members of Lake Lanier Stakeholders also voiced support for continuing to give input to the Environmental Protection Division in efforts to establish a “total maximum daily load,” or maximum amount of pollutants water can receive and meet quality standards. “We can perhaps, proactively, work on things that lend themselves to what that implementation plan will be,” said Adam Hazell, planning director for the Gainesville-based Georgia Mountains Regional Commission.
