Lake Filling

The weir is scheduled to close on Friday, May 11 to start bringing the lake up to summer water level. The start date was delayed due to the concern of MCDD about flooding potential from forecasted wet May weather.

Lakeshore Park Planting Event

The next planting event at Lakeshore Park is Thursday 3/29 at 10 AM. Bring a cushion to kneel on as we will be using a gas auger to dig the holes. We will not be able to raise the lake level until the plants are planted so come on out and help.
Thanks, Bob Dolphin

Lakeshore Park Planting Event

Lakeshore Park Update

As you may have noticed the City of Fairview has started the next phase of the Lakeshore Park upgrade. The southern riparian area is being reshaped and replanted with native plants. The steep banks will be graded to a 45-degree angle covered with matting and replanted to reduce bank erosion. The large blackberry bramble was removed. Roughly 1000 native plants are being ordered for replanting this area. FLPOA has agreed to assist in organizing volunteer planting days to assist in the restoration of this riparian area. Please consider volunteering in these efforts to preserve the natural areas of our lake. More information to follow as plant delivery dates become available.

Pinot Gris Grapes

I have a good crop of Pinot Gris grapes this year and I am not going to do anything with them. Anyone interested in making wine? Come and get them. They are ready! I just want the vine not the grapes.

Blue Green Algae Update

Results came back on 9/5/17 for the sample taken on 7/10/17 and the laboratory confirmed that the species of algae sampled that day did not produce toxins as it died. I called the lab multiple times following up on our sample and it was still close to sixty days to get the results. As an organization we may want to evaluate our process for monitoring the blue green algae for toxicity.
