The public will get more access to the Bear Creek Reservoir, but a small group of people will get special privileges.
With almost 40 citizens present, the Upper Oconee Basin Water Authority voted last Wednesday to modify the rules it approved two months earlier for boat access to the 505-acre reservoir located off GA 330 in southwest Jackson County.
The general public will have access by the boat ramp Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at the Bear Creek Reservoir. Citizens whose property abuts the Upper Oconee Basin Authority's land at the reservoir will be able to use the lake seven days a week by launching boats from their property.
