For years, hazardous areas of Lake Lanier have been identified by markers warning boaters to steer clear. At night, however, those unlit posts can be difficult to see. Through a partnership spearheaded by the Lake Lanier Association, a nonprofit advocacy group focused on the lake, lights are gradually being added to markers to improve visibility.
