     Black Dot Image J. Strom Thurmond Project Recreation Chief Ranger GS-0401/0025-11 - The Thurmond Project is a great place to work, at 150,000 acres of land and water it's the largest Corps project and second largest Corps hydropower plant constructed east of the Mississippi. Consistently in the top 10 in visitation, we also have a sizeable shoreline management program, and one of the largest forestry programs among Corps Civil Works Projects. There are opportunities here to gain experience in all of the Corps' programs. The area has a lot to offer. The Central Savannah River Area, which includes Augusta and borders the south end of the lake, is the second largest metropolitan area in Georgia, and is home to Master's Golf Tournament, a tremendous experience even if you're not a golf fan. The cost of living in the area is very affordable, and for those with children Columbia County, GA boasts some of the best K-12 schools in the state. The lake itself is generally in a rural setting and boasts a tremendous amount of outdoor recreation opportunities including hunting, fishing, boating, and, though you probably wouldn't have guessed it, world class mountain biking. More information on the lake can be found at http://www.sas.usace.army.mil/About/Divisions-and-Offices/Operations- Division/J-Strom-Thurmond-Dam-and-Lak
