Lake Murray Association
The Lake Murray Association (LMA) was chartered in 1994 by a group of citizens concerned with low lake levels. Our goal has always been to protect and preserve the integrity of Lake Murray, thus we are known as "The Voice of Lake Murray."
We serve as a watchful eye and educator on issues affecting the lake. We represent Lake Murray and ALL people who use and benefit from this wonderful resource.
The Lake Murray Association (LMA) provides representation for all lake users from the four counties around the lake on issues that pertain to water quality, lake level, safety, management and use of Lake Murray. The Association works to foster cooperation among the various users and organizations with an interest in the lake to insure a clean, safe, and user friendly lake.

New law increases distance limits between a boat, docks in many S.C. waters, prohibits wake surfing within 200 feet
A new law signed into effect March 14 by Gov. Henry Dargan McMaster establishes on most of South Carolina’s major reservoirs a new 100-foot distance limit that boats underway must observe when approaching a dock, a person in the water or an anchored vessel.
The new law, which doubles the previous distance of 50 feet, applies to the waters of Lake Greenwood, Lake Hartwell, Lake Jocassee, Lake Keowee, Lake Marion, Lake Monticello, Lake Murray, Lake Robinson, Lake Russell, Lake Secession, Lake Thurmond, Lake Wateree, Fishing Creek Reservoir, Parr Reservoir, or the portion of the Savannah River from the Interstate 20 Savannah River Bridge to the New Savannah River Bluff Lock and Dam. The 100-foot distance limit does not apply to Lake Moultrie.
The new law also prohibits “wake surfing” on all S.C. waters within 200 feet of a dock, a person in the water or an anchored watercraft. Wake surfing is defined in the new law as “a vessel that is ballasted in the stern so as to create a wake that is, or is intended to be, surfed by another person.”
Colonel A. Chisolm Frampton, SCDNR deputy director for law enforcement, said: “This is a much-needed change that will increase boating safety for all South Carolina boaters.”
