Lake Survey Update
At the Lee Lake Association meeting held on July 18th, the members present ask that we develop a survey to determine our future pathway for treatment. The board with the help of some volunteers have completed the survey.
The LLA has also completed the 2017 Summer Edition of our newsletter. The newsletter chronicles our efforts to educate our lake community about the invasive species invading our lake. It will explain the proposed treatment options; including types of invasive species, treatment options, cost and length of treatment.
The lake association will be hand delivering the newsletter and survey to residents. The representatives will be able to explain the survey and answer any questions. We ask that you fill out the survey and return it within 5 days.
If you did not get a newletter and survey you can download and print one here. Please return the survey to the contacts listed.

DNR Boat Launch Update
The DNR awarded the contract to PLM to treat the Phragmites. PLM has extended an offer to treat the adjacent properties to the launch at the option and cost to the land owner. The LLA continues to work on a plan to treat the invasive plants and offers the PLM option as this opportunity recently developed. The DNR has suggested and encourage the adjacent property owners to treat with the goal of eliminating the invasive species and over time the natural aquatic plants will return. If your interested in treating Phargmites contact PLM ASAP as the deadline is Sept 6th 2017.
