The Crisp County Power Commission is one of more than 2,200 public power systems in the U.S. providing dependable and economic power to the citizens in their communities. We serve Crisp County, Georgia including the municipalities of Cordele and Arabi. We also own and operate Lake Blackshear, an 8,700 acre reservoir stretching 20 miles long on the Flint River which provides hydroelectric power to our customers. The Power Commission is dedicated to providing excellent customer service and reliable, cost-effective power to our customers. Our service area covers approximately 330 square miles with an estimated population of 23,000.
We will be lowering Lake Blackshear this fall as we do every other year. The lake will be drawn down approximately 3 1/2 feet below normal on a gradual basis starting November 1st . The lake will be left down through the 15th of December. The purpose of the drawdown is to allow lake property owners a chance to repair existing structures. Also, the drawdown should slow some of the aquatic plant growth in the lake.
Anyone wishing to construct new structures, including seawalls, or make substantial repairs to their existing structures are advised to contact Marcus Waters, Resource Manager, to determine the necessity of any needed permits from the Crisp County Power Commission and/or other state and federal agencies. In particular, dredging or filling work usually requires Corps of Engineers and EPD approval in addition to the Power Commission approval. Please call about minor maintenance of existing structures and we can advise you if it does or does not require a permit.
Property owners wishing to perform any work during the drawdown should contact the Resource Manager at 229-273-3820 as soon as possible to avoid any delays.
