Your LOWIA board wishes everyone a Blessed Christmas and Happy New Year. Ice should be forming any day now, but we do have the warm weather coming next week. Be safe out there when ice fishing and beware of the bubblers that some homeowners use to keep the ice open by their property. We will be posting the latest water quality report from our lake here on our website. Here is a short understanding of the report from PLM.
In short, there are no big red flags. Dissolved oxygen and E.coli were both good. The only things that were a little elevated were phosphorus (both spring and late summer) and nitrogen (spring). The phosphorus was not bad, just a little bit elevated in the spring. The late summer phosphorus was sampled from near the lake bottom so it is expected to be higher. Regardless, both were not bad numbers…. Just slightly elevated. The spring nitrogen was only slightly elevated but was back to normal in the late summer.
Ho, Ho, Ho from your board.
