Lake Restoration Committee Update (2/20/20)

The Lake Restoration Committee is made up of ILPOA Members. The purpose of the committee is to investigate, research, evaluate solutions and make recommendations regarding the long-term health of Indian Lake.

After a full review of the strategy, approach and Communication & Education plan presented to the BOD, the Lake Restoration Committee is moving forward towards a solution to our lake’s declining health and depth problem.  By decreasing the lake’s over-abundance of organic muck, this solution will be focused on accomplishing an increase in lake depth, improve the overall appearance and quality of our water, decrease the problematic (unrooted) aquatic plant life and provide the fish within our lake a much better opportunity to thrive. Over then next 3 months, we will be releasing a series of 5 videos outlining the issues facing our lake community. Each video will be 5-10 minutes in length and build on the information provided in previous videos.

This 1st video is 5.5 min long and outlines the natural process of lake eutrophication. It provides the basis of what solutions are required and how they will reverse this natural process and return our lake to a healthy balance

Understand the progressive process by which eutrophication takes place

In addition to the series of ongoing videos, we have scheduled four member information sessions throughout the area to provide each member reasonable opportunity to receive the most current data, ask any questions and provide their constructive input on how to refine the proposed solution to better meet the needs of our membership. Please take the time to view these short videos as well as attend at least 1 of the scheduled member sessions.
