Lift the federal ban on Richard B. Russell Lake

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

Federal regulations prohibit private use of the public lands surrounding Lake Russell. We were hit hard in our area after the textile plants packed up and moved away. Our greatest resource and asset is Richard B. Russell lake. Currently the Army corps of engineers have a 300ft barrier that basically seals off any economic advantage the lake would have on the surrounding towns and counties. This is a solution to our problem.
