Lake Russell Dedicated

The U.S. Corps of Army Engineers dedicated Lake Richard B. Russell - Georgia’s newest reservoir. The lake, which is shared with South Carolina, is located east of Elberton on the Savannah River between Lake Hartwell to the north and Lake Strom Thurmond (Clarks Hill) to the south.
