The lake management commission plans to be active in the coming months in an effort to contain nutrients that enter our lake from the runoff area that includes farm fields. Last year was a tough one for the lake with some extremely hot temperatures and heavy algae. The commission plans to install circulation devices in the inlet known as “the dip”, which is the smaller of the two inlets in the west end of the lake. Plantings are also being planned to absorb some of the nutrients.
Although the budget is not yet approved for the expenditures, the cost is in the current budget and the board is expected to approve. We all know the lake is the central asset of our community. We are after all known as “Candlewick Lake.”
