Recap of our 2010 Shoreline Advisor Program

Our first year of promoting and arranging for shoreline advisors to visit Halls and Hawk Lake properties was most successful. The visits were held on the somewhat rainy weekend of August 21 and 22.

In order to handle the requests we received from members Lakeland Alliance, who runs the program, assigned two advisors to our Lakes.

The advisors visited eleven properties on all three lakes and assisted owners with a number of different issues. The advisors reported that the most common reoccurring themes were people wanting advise on how to deal with shoreline erosion problems, questions and concerns around invasive plant species, and concerns about water quality.

The advisors were also impressed that our property owners seemed to have a very good understanding and awareness of the operation and maintenance of their septic systems and holding tanks.
