To All Smith Mountain Lake Residents: The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is enforcing shoreline management rules decades after hydroelectric projects were first developed. The impact on surrounding communities cannot be exaggerated as FERC rules are discouraging private investment, lowering property values, killing jobs, limiting access to project waters, inhibiting landowner’s ability to sell, violating Federal, State and local ordinances, and trampling on personal property rights.
