|Professional Lake Testing
Will be Performed This Year
Dr. Wally Fusilier, Consulting Limnologist,
of Water Quality Investigators has been contracted to perform water quality
analysis and lake evaluation this year. Every year the lake participates
in the MLSA’s self-help lake monitoring program that uses Sechi disk visibility
and tests surface water samples for nutrients. Every fourth or fifth
year more extensive testing is performed. Dr. Fusilier has performed
this testing on our lake several times in the past. The testing includes
bottom sediment examination, deep water sample analyses and weed bed mapping.
Dr. Fusilier will have his boat on the lake two times this year, the first
time in April or early May. His boat includes a motorized dredge for
taking bottom samples. The Association board has approved the use of
Dr. Fusilier’s motorized equipment on the lake. If anyone has any questions
about this, please contact a board member.
Hope everyone is enjoying some of the nice spring days we’ve had lately.
It’s nice to see that spring is here. Along with watching the
migrating waterfowl visit our lake, it’s nice to start getting some warm
weather. On the subject of migrating waterfowl, it was fun to see that
one swan migrating through, along with the more typical common mergansers
and pied billed grebes.
There may have been other migrating waterfowl this year that I may have missed
because I’ve had my hands full lately ….. in a really great way. My
husband Steve and I are proud parents of our first child, Claire Marie
Grob, born January 25, 2002. She was 8lbs 1oz at birth, but didn’t
stay that small for long. She was already 13lbs 2 oz at her 2 month
check up. We are enjoying being a family so much. We are really
looking forward to enjoying this summer with her on the lake.
It doesn’t seem like there are many really small children on our lake, but
I’m curious if there are other small ones like ours either here or on the
way that we may not know about. It
would be neat to find out so that maybe the kids could have some neighborhood
playmates. Our phone number is 634-2549.
Hope to see many of you at the annual meeting this year. We will
be getting some good updates on the more extensive water quality testing
plans and have an interesting guest speaker, Sue Julian from the Rose Preservation
This will be my last meeting acting as president. I have decided that
with all the additional responsibilities of being a new mom, I would take
the time commitment of Lake Association President off the platter.
I have truly enjoyed all the time that I have been involved and on the board.
It’s really helped me appreciate the wonderful asset we all have, living
here on this lake. I have also decided to terminate my board member
status. I thought the extra available time would be nice, and that
making a seat available will help bring in a new face, and give them the
opportunity for this experience.
I hope everyone has a nice summer.
