Shoreline Management Plan for Lake Hudson

In September 2006, the Grand River Dam Authority announced it had received a new, 30-year license from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to operate the Markham Ferry Project, which includes Lake Hudson and Robert S. Kerr Dam. Now, in an effort to continue to manage the lake in a manner that is beneficial in the future, GRDA must develop a Shoreline Management Plan (SMP) for Lake Hudson.

The SMP is a comprehensive plan to manage the multiple resources and uses of the Hudson’s shoreline in a manner consistent with license requirements and public purposes. In essence, the SMP is the blueprint for the shoreline now and in the future.
