Dam owners agree to Lanier cleanup from spill | www.ajc.com

The Georgia Environmental Protection Division says it reached informal agreement Monday with the owners of a dam that spilled silt and mud into Lake Lanier late last month.

Bert Langley, EPD district operations manager, said the private landowner and the city of Cumming have agreed to sign a consent order that will detail cleanup efforts to Lanier and repair work to the dam at Lake Alice, which sits a half-mile to the west.

The dam burst May 19 after storms dumped more than 4 inches of rain on the area. Water and mud seeped through it, following Little Ridge Creek, washing out part of Sanders Road, then flowing into a cove at the southwest side of Lake Lanier.
