Update on Lakes
We have received some concerns regarding the condition of some of the lakes. Pamela Jacobs and I toured the community with Solitude Lake Management this week to address our concerns. Our lakes have an excess amount of nitrogen in them (nutrient overload) which can cause an over-stimulation of growth of aquatic plants and algae. This is very common this time of the year. The lakes are being closely monitored and all the lakes were treated again yesterday. We should start seeing improvements within the next week.
