Blue Green Algae Update

Following an acceptable laboratory analysis for potential toxins produced by this group of algae on Monday July 16th, no health advisory is required. The blue-green algae continue to thrive and with the extended projected heat wave, we anticipate it will linger into August. Continue to avoid green water and mats of algae.

We plan on taking additional samples to monitor any possible toxins.

Blue Green Algae

Blue-Green Algae (Cyanobacteria) is present in Fairview Lake at this time in sufficient numbers to warrant laboratory testing for potential toxins produced by this group of algae. Until the nature of the algae is determined lake users are advised to keep children and pets out of the water. Adults should refrain from swimming to avoid eye irritation and/or intestinal illness. Boating and fishing are safe currently.

The algae present are early in its life cycle and toxins are not suspected today, but samples are being laboratory tested at this time. If toxins are present additional restrictions may apply. Further notices will be posted, delivered and the website updated as needed. We are using a new lab and anticipate results by 7/20.

For now, be alert with water activity, especially children, and pets. Be very wary around bright green floating mats of algae.

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

Please come help restore Lakeshore Park natural area by planting native plants to protect the bank and establish habitat. First planting event is scheduled for Saturday, March 24th 9 AM to noon. Dress for the weather and muddy conditions. Bring a shovel and garden gloves.
Hope to see you there.

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.

Car Theft

I just wanted to get a warning out to the Neighbors. Two nights ago our 1995 Subaru Legacy was stolen from the front of the house. We filed a police report, and the car was found the very next day on Interlochen. Apparently, these people have keys for older vehicles and just drive off with them.
