ABOUT LAKE MURRAY
Lake Murray in Columbia SC is technically a 50,000 acres +/- reservoir that came as a result of damming the Saluda River in 1930. It is currently the 10th
largest man-made lake in the United States of America and is named after the engineer who originally drafted up the 1930 plans for the hydroelectric project Mr William Murray. There is approximately 500 miles of shoreline which make lakefront water view homes very desirable and available.
In Oct 2013 SCE&G (South Carolina Electric and Gas) the chief directors of the dam and the lake levels did an intentional drawdown to enhance the water quality and an added benefit to the draw-down is that this will give lake residents and businesses roughly a month at the lower level to make dock repairs and shoreline improvements that are permitted by SCE&G’s Lake Murray Shoreline Management Plan,” continued Landreth.
Lake Murray fishing is one of the best in the nation, and has been and is regularly home to many BASS PRO & FLW PRO fishing events including the Bassmaster Classic, and many countless other noteworthy angling events.

ABOUT LAKE MURRAY REAL ESTATE
Lake Murray is comprised primarily of single-family homes with most of them located in what is considered Columbia but is really the town of Irmo. The other two largest towns are Lexington & Chapin mentioned above where the vast majority of properties for sale will be simply because of the fact there is more shoreline. Most of Lake Murray is not considered a flood zone although the “2015 flood” when SC endured what was said to be a once in a lifetime 1000 yr rainfall there were significant problems with flooding and the lake officials were forced to open the emergency dam for the first time since the dam’s construction.
There are really no building restrictions specific to owning or building on the lake except the permits and requirements of what the city/town allows and MOST importantly your dock permits by SCE&G. As far as attached homes are concerned there are only a few townhome developments and/or condominium projects on Lake Murray.
