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.


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.

Where has the wild life gone?

I have lived on Fairview Lake twenty years. During that time the wild life population has decreased. this summer especially animal life is noticeably scarce. Only one turtle has been seen sunning on a log. Only one bull frog bellows at night. The chirping of hundreds of small frogs in the evening has been silenced. Instead of several Osprey, only one has been perched for fishing up in a tree. Spiraling, jumping of golden carp is seldom seen this year. No snakes have been seen on shore. No river otters have slid over the weir this summer. Not one fingerling small mouth bass has been seen. Eagles are still present Five were seen at one time soaring over the lake. There are no great white egrets this year. What has threatened wild life survival in Fairview Lake?

Blue Green Algae Alert

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 is 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 web site updated as needed.
For now, be alert with water activity, especially children and pets. Be very wary around bright green floating mats of algae.
