Lake Lanier Dam

Client: Town of Tryon, North Carolina

Quible Project Summary: Quible produced Emergency Action Plans for the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) and NC Department of Environmental Quality (NC DEQ) for the Lake Lanier Dam in Tryon NC. The majority of Lake Lanier is located in South Carolina. The Lake Lanier dam sits essentially on the border of North and South Carolina. Impacts resulting from issues with the dam would have the greatest effect on NC infrastructure and residents. This project presented the unique opportunity coordinate with regulatory agencies from NC and SC and produce an Emergency Action Plan that satisfied both agencies. Quible completed NC DEQ and SC DHEC approved modeling procedures to predict infrastructure and properties that could be affected by water impounded by the dam and completed plans for emergency notification should an emergency arise.
