Located on what was previously known as Smithfield School Road, then later as Teague Road, Forestar’s Compartment 12229 lies adjacent to Carroll County’s proposed Indian Creek Reservoir, only a short distance to the planned 1600’ long dam site. The reservoir project would create a 643 acre drinking water reservoir and be a primary option for the Carroll County Water Authority’s strategy to provide water service to the region’s growing population in unincorporated areas of the county. Initial site maps indicate the proposed reservoir would flood approximately 6+ acres of the northwest section of the Forestar tract and create over 1500 feet of lake shoreline. Historic droughts in the last decade make a proposed drinking water reservoir, either here on Indian Creek or elsewhere in the county, a more probable solution.

The Thompson Road Tract features a professionally managed pine plantation that has been thinned once (at age 14) to leave the best crop trees for future growth and value. Stream side buffers designed to exceed Georgia’s Best Management Practices for Forestry have been managed to ensure riparian zones are protected for water quality, and simultaneously function as a diverse, shaded ecosystem providing food, cover, shelter, and travel corridors for some of Georgia’s game and non-game wildlife species. The Thompson Drive tract is today a great timber tract investment with the potential for longer term real estate appreciation.
