Clean Lake Earth Day Request ~<br> Take the Lake Protection Pledge

We can create a cleaner lake – with your help! Some of the pollutants that trigger algae blooms, close beaches and cause other problems in the lake come from our own homes and driveways. Taking simple actions such as picking up after your pet, using non-phosphorus dishwasher detergent, and repositioning gutters to drain onto grass, soil, or to rain barrels will help prevent nutrients, sediments and toxins from getting into the water from your household. You’ll find these and other tips on our website where you can also sign up to “Take the Pledge” and commit to protecting water quality. It’s a great action to take on Earth Day!
