Clean Lakes Alliance

The Village continues to support the efforts of the Clean Lakes Alliance, which aims to reduce phosphorus levels in our nearby lakes. Phosphorus contributes to lake algae which has environmental impacts on the ecology of our lakes. Please take some time to learn more about the health and status of our lakes by watching the 2017 State of the Lakes video found here.

If you want to learn more about how leaves and other yard waste contribute to phosphorus levels in our lakes, and how you can do your part to help in the cause there is a short video that can be accessed
here. The Clean Lakes alliance also makes available a paper guide to help residents learn more about strategies they can use to positively impact the watershed and our lakes. These strategies can be found by clicking here.

Finally, if you are interested in getting timely status updates on the condition of our lakes, the Clean Lakes Alliance provides updates on their YouTube channel with the most recent update on June 1, 2018 found
