Green Pond Landing Work to Take Longer than Expected

The Green Pond Landing & Event Center will be closed to the public longer than expected for upgrades and repairs. The facilty, except for the old single lane ramp at Green Pond, is now expected to be closed Aug. 5-Oct. 31.

During the closure, Anderson County will be construct its fourth phase of improvements at Green Pond:

1.         Launch Ramp turnaround expansion 

2.         ADA truck/trailer parking improvements

3.         Roadway radii improvements

4.         Perimeter Road straightening

5.         Dual lane queue at top of ramp

6.         Pour in place wall construction

Funds from the Lake Hartwell PCB Settlement, and money budgeted for the project, will pay for majority of the above improvements after getting approval from Anderson County Council Tuesday night.

Anderson County will begin the next phase of improvements at Green Pond in January 2020.  At this time, Anderson County Public Works will begin building an amphitheater for fishing tournament weigh-ins.  The launch ramps will remain open during this construction. 

Since its opening on Dec. 19, 2014, Green Pond has hosted fishing tournaments with a combined economic impact of $56.1 million.  By the end of 2022, that number could be close to $100 million.
