Take Action

Water Quality

  Keep Phosphorus Out Of The Lake

  • Reduce fertilizer use or use low-phosphorus "lake-friendly" fertilizer
  • Keep a vegetated "buffer" between the shore and developed land
  • Build responsibly- obtain necessary permits, use erosion-control barriers such as hay bales and silt fence, minimize disturbed areas, and mulch and replant as soon as possible
  • Use phosphate-free detergents
  • Maintain your septic system – pump frequently and conserve water

  Protect The View

  • Maintain low visibility – leave a natural "buffer" along the shore to protect water quality and wildlife habitat
  • Limit tree cutting within 100 feet from shore
  • Leave the shoreline in its natural state – existing rocks prevent erosion by stabilizing the shoreline
