|We're really excited about the Long Range Planning initiated by the WHLSPOA Committee for Water Quality organized this past January. The Committee met several times since forming, outlining a long range plan for water quality protection. Short term they have tasked themselves with producing best practices - real common sense guidance - designed to help us think about alternatives for doing many activities we commonly perform on our properties in the watershed.
Our heartfelt thanks go out to the committee - Steve Unger, Pete Humphrey, Joe Welker, David Miner, Bill Adamsen, Stash Karoliszyn, Sue Hall, Skip Sly, Mary Hourdequin and Bill Adamsen for their initiative.
- Autumn cleanup? - here are some pointers that just make common sense about collecting leaves and preventing erosion.
- Poison ivy taking over? Here are some alternatives for getting it under control without poisoning the environment.
- Waterfront work required? Here are some considerations from the regulatory agencies you'll need to contact and some ideas for making a long-lasting and environmentally friendly improvement.
- Redesigning your landscaping? - they're putting together ideas to consider to reduce maintenance and protect the lake.
This is our first newsletter and we hope you find it informative. Thanks for your patience!
