Welcome to our web site and thank you for your interest in Lake Nottely.  This site continues to evolve. If you have suggestions or questions, you can reach us at


Well glad you’re here. We have some upcoming events that we would like to focus on. So –

April 22, 2017 Saturday. Major fun and useful event. The Great Spring Lake Nottely Clean-up.

Results: Tremendously successful clean-up. Forty-five participants from LNIA, Hiwassee River Watershed Coalition (HRWC) who teamed with us as well as several impromptu participants met for the event. We started with coffee and donuts (two desirable food groups) at the Lakeside Village (thanks Men’s Club). We worked off of three pontoon boats (two from Nottely Marina – thanks folks) and a couple of run-abouts. Twelve hundred pounds later plus Styrofoam blocks and a refrigerator  (total 2,400 pounds per Union County that hauled everything – thanks UC) we enjoyed sandwiches from Ingles around noon. Great group, great weather, great clean-up.

The first of two lake clean-ups will focus on publicly-owned lakeshore along the mid and lower portions of the lake. We will meet at the Lakeside Village Community Center (843 Lakeside Dr) at 8:30 A.M. for donuts and coffee. We have three pontoon boats available (two from Nottely Marina) to move us around the lake for a morning long cruise and treasure hunt. We will gather back at Lakeside for lunch and bragging. LNIA (TVA assist) will provide the gloves and bags; you provide yourself in work clothing and boots for the shoreline terrain. Hiwassee River Watershed Coalition is participating in this action. See you Saturday. If you can and haven’t already notified us, let us know you will participate by sending us an email at lniablast@outlook.com but don’t let that stop you from coming. We can always add more water to the coffee.

We get to do more good work for our community on Saturday, May 20 (did I say May 20?) at 10 a.m. for our semi-annual road clean-up. Road litter has been a big subject lately but this project is one we have performed for a long time. We will meet just west of the dam at the picnic table. LNIA will provide gloves, bags (TVA). You might want to wear sturdy shoes not flip flops. We will split into teams to cover our area east and west of the dam on Hwy 325. We generally finish before noon and compare treasures. More hands, less work. Denver is in charge so you know it will be organized.


In May we will be in the Memorial Day Parade again on Saturday. May 27. We will meet at the old Recreation Gym at 371 School Circle between 8:30 and 9:00 a.m. We have a boat, we have our flags and we are ready.  We are the only boat in the parade and plan on again passing out POW flags and candy. Great way to get your steps in or a free ride in a boat.  No reservation nor fees – just need you there. You can find out more by reaching us at lniablast@outlook.com or talk to us at the clean-up. A.G. and George are leading this effort. Come support the older generation’s efforts.

2016 – Carolyn leading

And just to let you know that we are already working… In partnership with Union County and TVA we have installed boat ramp markers to help boaters load and unload their boats particularly in high water conditions. These markers will indicate left and right edges and in the case of Poteete ramp alert boaters to the existance of the middle raised platform. High water (vote yes for 2017 conditions) prevent visibility of these points. We will evaluate the project this year. Look for them at the dam ramp and Poteete.
