What can be done to reduce the frequency and intensity of blue-green algae blooms?

There are no quick or easy remedies for the control of blue-green algae once they appear in a lake or pond. Reducing the amount of nutrients that wash into our lakes and ponds will eventually reduce the frequency and intensity of blue-green algae blooms, but it may take a long time and a lot of community involvement to effectively change the nutrient concentrations in a water body. This is because there may still be large amounts of nutrients in the sediment at the bottom that may continue to serve as food for the blue-green algae.

Regulatory agencies like the Washington Departments of Natural Resources and Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection are working with communities around the state to reduce stormwater runoff, and to encourage agricultural practices that reduce soil erosion while maintaining high crop yields. Locally, landowners and interested citizens can help minimize the problems associated with algal blooms by working together with partners in their watershed to reduce the amount of nutrients that reach nearby lakes, streams, and ponds. You can help reduce nutrient concentrations by promoting the following practices in your community:



Litter pickup

We do two road cleanups per year.  One in the spring and one in the fall. 


Noxious Weed Clean-up

There are two professional surveys done on the lake each year.  One in the spring and one in the fall.  The spring survey can be as early as May or as late as July depending on the type of winter we have had.  Plants must be in their early growth stages to determine milfoil and other noxious weed existence.  Two surveys are also done at the same time by our own milfoil crew.  The data is then compared and work determined for the lake.  The milfoil patrol is a great way to learn about your lake.  Sign up and come survey with us.


We have posted their latest survey map in the survey section of the web.
