Default Burrells ford campground renovation

They are moving a lot of dirt around down there. I'm no expert but it looks to me like the first hard rain that comes is going to see most of it run right into the chattooga. Does anybody know who I can call to report this?
I've seen more run off control in a dollar store parking lot.

Wow. My first call would be to Rabun County itself and maybe check with them.

From the website: http://www.rabuncountygov.com/planningzoning.html

The Rabun County Planning Commission Consists of five members appointed by the Rabun County Board of Commissioners. The Planning and Zoning office is responsible for issuing Building Permits, Land Disturbing Activity Permits, processing applications for rezoning, Specific Purpose and variances. This office also enforces the Rabun County Zoning Ordinance and Soil and Water Conservation.

I think the campground is on the SC side of the river.

You are correct Sir! Don't think contacting Rabun County will do any good. And I guess you can try and contact someone in SC, but I would think that this is a Federal government item as the river (and I assume campground) are both within the boundries of the Wild and Scenic River corridor.

The Burrells Ford campground is in the Sumter Natl. Forest and their local HQ is along Hwy. 28 north of Walhalla. Contact them.

You would think they would be the people to contact but I don't think they care. I told a ranger about 2 large bags of trash that animals had spread all through the woods by the bridge and they were still there 4 days later.
How about somebody from the Rabun chapter of TU. I bet they would know somebody that would go down there and check it out. Like I said earlier, I'm no expert.

I finally got in touch with the right person, she seemed concerned and said she would check it out within a week.

I didn't see any kind of erosion barriers there yesterday.

What exactly are they building? It looks like they are laying one very large foundation on the south end, and a few other smaller foundations here and there. Also, it looks like every site has telephone poles driven down into them. I can't imagine what they are for, if it's for hanging food away from bears, it seems like there are much cheaper and simpler options than telephone poles. Anyone have any idea? Or a link to details on the project?
