Tips to keep our water clean

It’s not a garden – don't dump ashes, fertilizer, or anything at all into the lake.

There are shallow areas choked with milfoil - stay clear of them.

It’s not a bathtub or toilet – no soap, waste or pee.

It’s not a speedway – boat wakes increase erosion. Erosion brings dirt and nutrients into the lake.

Milfoil was brought in on someone’s boat – we worry Zebra mussels are next.

Help your guests keep the water clean

Cut and remove your Milfoil

The Lake Association encourages residents to cut milfoil themselves and remove the cuttings. Milfoil bits may also drift in that have been cut up by boat motors, and lake residents are encouraged to remove them from the lake (they make good compost!).
