The Reserve proposes to develop Commercial/Residential and Commercial/Non-residential marina facilities at the site, consisting of 23 cluster docks with a total of 304 boat dock locations, an irrigation pump that would withdraw up to 2 million gallons of water a day from the lake, a docking location for fuel pumping and sewer pumpout facilities, and a dry stack storage facility that can accommodate up to 624 boats and includes a boat launching pier. The proposal would also involve dredging of 6,300 cubic yards of material, the use of a ferry to provide water access for property owners and golf carts to various locations on Lake Keowee (the ferry will not be moored at the site), and implementation of a mitigation plan to address existing encroachments of the golf course on project lands.
