The Johns Creek springs and lake pollution story we ran a few weeks ago has had a major change. The residents of the lake kept on it and finally got some relief.

The lake residents had contacted the Georgia EPD for advice on the lake siltation issue and was told that they would send someone out to take a look at the situation in a week or two. To their surprise yesterday morning three pick-up  trucks came down the lake access road. Georgia EPD,  Forsyth County, and KM Homes Contractor arrived to do a site inspection.

KM Homes has a zoning condition to remove a foot of silt from a 6 acre lake at the headwaters of Johns Creek after constructing a subdivision on Brookwood Road. The subdivision, Arbor Chase, has just been completed and the developers went to the commissioners to let them out of the cleaning. The silt cleaning had to be bonded and measured by certified engineers. The engineers reported several dump trucks of silt has washed into the lake. The job was bonded and would require no money from the owner of the lake. And it has to be cleaned up and restored to it's natural condition. So why does the owner of the lake not want it cleaned up?
