Lake Draw Down
The annual lake drawdown is scheduled to begin on or around October 11 – the level can decrease by up to 2 inches per day. Check back here for any updates concerning Round Pond impact on the schedule.
The annual Lake Singletary Earth Day Cleanup was held as planned on April 24th. We had a great turnout and result. Thank you members for your support!
Couldn’t join us? You can always help in many ways:
Consider watering lawns with lake water as a replacement for commercial fertilizer – lake water has many vital nutrients and some people have reported good results. Even small amounts of commercial fertilizer leaching in the lake promotes rapid weed and algae growth.
If you choose to fertilize, always use low phosphorous options – they are more expensive than regular options initially, but pays us back in many ways – including less need for reactive treatments to the watershed.
Never point grass clippings or leaf blowers towards the lake – that too accelerates invasive species, weeds and algae.
Control your wake when lake levels are high. There is danger of septic leaching and damage to shoreline ecosystems.
Dim the lights. The lake provides a natural mirror which sends flood and ornamental light further than you might think. Please consider your neighbor across the lake when placing lights. Point lights downward when possible to avoid light pollution.
LSWA Annual General Meeting was held Wednesday, 8/25, 7:00pm at Saint Marks Church on Boston Road in Sutton – thanks for your support!
