Corps adds $835 dock and facility fee on lake / June 12, 2019

Beginning Jan. 1, 2020, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will implement a revised administrative fee schedule resulting in a total cost of $835 for a dock and land-based facilities at its reservoirs and along certain federal waterways in the southeastern United States, including John H. Kerr Reservoir.

The administrative fee will cover costs that the Corps incurs for the issuance or re-issuance of these licenses. Such activities are generally in connection with private use of fee owned public lands by landowners adjacent to the reservoirs such as dock anchorage, lighting, walkways, and steps to improve access to permitted boat docks and similar facilities.

There will no longer be a fee charged for fair market value of the licensed items, just the fee associated with administration of the license.

In addition to Kerr Lake, the new fee will apply to the following reservoirs and waterways: Okeechobee Waterway, Fla.; Allatoona Lake and Lake Sidney Lanier, Ga.; Walter F. George Lake and West Point Lake on the Georgia-Alabama border; Lake Seminole on the Georgia-Florida border; Hartwell Lake, and W. Kerr Scott Lake, N.C.
