At the December meeting of the Lake Lanier Islands Development Authority, conducted via ZOOM, updates about the new conference center at Lanier Island were discussed.

Replacement of critical infrastructure work will begin on the aging sewer force main line in early January. The phased project will focus on the oldest and most critical lines in Phase 1. Additional phases are being designed.  Focusing on replacing the old cast-iron force-mail pipes, the job is expected to be complete within the next four to five months.

A bid request for the site work was advertised in mid-December. Once the contractor is selected and the Corps of Engineers approves the revised master plan for the conference center, work can begin. The next meeting of the authority is scheduled for February 19, 2021.
