LMA Richland County Public Meeting September 16, 2014 Lighthouse Marina.
Light refreshments at 6:30…Meeting starts at 7 PM.
The primary presentation for this meeting will be presented by Dr. Susan Richardson who this year joined the USC Department of Chemistry and will address the recent threat to the water supply of Akron, OH, from algae in Lake Erie. Could a similar problem arise on Lake Murray? What is the future of drinking water from Lake Murray? How can the community protect itself from such a problem? Dr. Richardson earned her doctorate in physical organic chemistry from Emory University and was a scientist at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency laboratory in Athens, GA for 24 years prior to joining USC as the Arthur S. Williams Professor of Chemistry. In addition, there will be updates from Lexington and Richland County Sheriffs’ Departments and from SCE&G.
The Lake Murray Association (LMA) is a non-profit, volunteer-staffed association formed in 1994.
The association charter states it was formed to provide a means of communication and enlighten its membership in matters that pertain to the protection, restoration and utilization of the waters of Lake Murray and its shoreline community. It provides information and education on issues related to the development, management, and use of Lake Murray. LMA conducts surveys and environmental studies directed at enhancing the health, safety and welfare of Lake Murray for all users. LMA serves users from four counties surrounding the lake. LMA is concerned with lake level, water quality, nuisance aquatic weed management, shoreline development and other issues that impact Lake Murray and its users. We welcome you to browse our web site so that you may learn more about our association and hopefully join our ongoing efforts to preserve and improve this beautiful resource we call Lake Murray.
