Goose Lake Stakeholder Meeting: Video

Goose Lake has the most impaired water quality in the VLAWMO watershed. With a range of issues including nutrient levels above State standards, sedimentation, and large algae blooms, it's a high priority for the watershed and surrounding communities. But no single organization can do it on their own. A variety of community members working together can create a more effective, longer lasting impact on Goose Lake's health. 

We thank everyone who came out to the January 16th, 2019 meeting to learn more about Goose Lake, ask questions, and be involved.

For those unable to make the meeting, there's no need to miss out! Check out the video below to hear about this year's Goose Lake plans and what you can do to help. 

Other resources mentioned at the meeting: 

What can you do for Goose Lake?
