About Georgia Lakes Society

The Georgia Lakes Society, formerly known as the Georgia Lakes Management Society, was formed in 1999 to address the growing concern over our water resources in Georgia.

Georgia lakes, ponds, and wetlands are in trouble. Many of these lakes and ponds have problems with excessive weed and algae growth, turbid water, or heavy sedimentation. Some have problems with bacterial or toxic contamination. Wetlands that protect lakes are being destroyed.

Solutions for these problems are not readily available. Lake management efforts by lake associations, homeowners, and concerned citizens have been hampered by lack of hands-on experience. In the past, there has been no statewide forum for the exchange of information on lake management strategies.

To address these needs, representatives of lake associations, state and local governments, professionals, academics, conservation agencies, and interested citizens have banded together to form the Georgia Lakes Society (GLS).
