Impassioned advocates working to ensure the continued beauty, integrity, safety and survival of Lake Glenville

Lake clean up has been part of FLG history for most of its existence. We recognize the importance of protecting and maintaining a clean lake for both nature and our community.

Lake debris can be extremely hazardous to both people and fish. Fluctuating water levels and the level reaching full pool often results in hazardous conditions, with logs and debris being floated from the shoreline and into the middle of the lake or coves.

FLG sponsors annual lake clean-up events, but we can all play a part in keeping our lake beautiful and safe for all to use. We use the guidelines below for our events, but they are useful reminders for those times you see debris and want to help.

Clean-Up Guidelines:

  • USE CAUTION & AVOID INJURY: Please do not injure yourself attempting to pick up large items. Always use two people to lift heavy items. If you don’t know where to take the items once removed, rope them and tie them securely to shore and let someone from FLG know their location.
  • ONLY MAN-MADE DEBRIS IS TO BE REMOVED FROM THE LAKE: All trees, logs, and any type of woody debris is to remain within the Project Boundary. If a tree or log is found floating free in the lake, it can be towed to the shoreline, somewhere it won’t interfere with boating access to any dock, and anchored so that it doesn’t float off but it must not be removed from the lake. Any smaller woody debris (limbs, branches, etc.) should either be left in the water or they can be placed in the 10 vertical foot peripheral strip of land owned by Duke Energy.

  • DO NOT REMOVE TREES OR BUSHES ATTACHED TO THE SHORLINE: Under Duke Energy guidelines they must be left where they are for fish habitat.
  • GET PERMISSION: The only exception to the above rule is when trees or bushes are interfering with the operation of a dock.  In this case permission must be obtained from Duke before removal.
  • PROPERLY DISPOSE OF LITTER/DEBRIS: Please place smaller, man-made items in a plastic bag and deliver them to a trash receptable.
  • PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY: Be sure to cover your boats with plastic or sheeting to prevent damage when onloading debris or navigating around particularly debris-heavy areas.
