Land acquisition for the Hard Labor Creek Reservoir is almost 90 percent complete and next week the project will receive a $32 million financial shot in the arm needed to make the long-awaited project a reality.

Last month three parcels of land were closed on, boosting the tally to 88 percent of 2,468 acres needed for the reservoir acquired. Another 22 parcels are under contract representing another 3 percent of the needed acreage.

    its about time ,traveling with my job alot of northern citys thought about water and shortages and built there reservoirs 80 years ago or longer .
    there lakes u can fish on but cant swim in nor have dogs around .u can have a picnic but no over nite camping . the water quality for drinking is crystal clear . a good example of how not to do it is lake lanier ,where boaters dump grey water and houses are built on the shores with septic tanks . many have gotten sic with spinal menigitis due to swimming in lake lanier . the corps control the water for elec power . thinking ahead should be priority number 1 for the county and its citizens
