Report Lake Debris

To report debris on Smith Mountain or Leesville Lake, please use the form below. Appalachian Power’s priority is to clear dangerous debris that may be hazardous to boaters in the main channels. The company also prioritizes debris near shorelines and in coves.

If you’re not certain you need to submit a report, refer to the examples of what can and cannot be removed.

Common Debris Examples

Each report will be evaluated independently, but floating trees, accumulations of debris after high flow events, and large accumulations of man-made debris are situations that can be addressed.
