The Effingham Water Authority has received complaints from property owners at Lake Sara that some landscape companies and individuals are blowing leaves into the lake.

The Water Authority said blowing leaves into the lake is strictly prohibited and could contaminate the water supply.  If anyone is caught blowing leaves into the lake, a citation will be issued.

The burning of leaves and landscape waste is permitted at Lake Sara between the hours of 8am and 6pm.  Such fires must be completely extinguished except during the hours allowed.  Fires must never be allowed to smolder, even during the permitted burn hours.
