The Lake James Environmental Association is committed to monitoring, publicly commenting on, and advocating for best practices for clean and ample water supplies for Lake James and its watershed.  We accomplish these goals by routine water sampling programs, bottom mapping Lake James to track siltation, and new programs to identify silt loading from the North Fork, Catawba, and Linville Rivers.
