    About the Watershed Survey

     We are pleased to announce that the Great East Lake 2021 Watershed Report is finished and
    available as a PDF link below. Many thanks to Jon Balanoff, the AWWA Executive Director, for
    his perseverance in seeing the project through to this point.
    We all know that our lake is very clear and clean, but the challenge before us is to keep it that
    way for future generations. The survey identified many sites throughout the watershed that
    threaten its present condition. Here is a quick summary of the findings:

               -25 sites were identified as having a high impact on water quality
               -97 sites were identified with medium impact
               -101 sites were identified with low impact

    Of these 200+ sites, about half of them require no-cost or low-cost remediation. The other half
    are more involved, more technically challenging, and will have a greater expense associated with
    them. Please keep in mind that AWWA’s Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) is available to assist
    with remediation projects and property owners need only pay the cost for materials, not labor.

    Letters and emails have been sent to all participating members informing them if erosion issues
    were found on their property or not. If issues were found, members were provided with details
    of the findings and suggested remediation methods.

    If you do not receive a letter or email and would like to inquire about findings on your property
    you can send your request to either the GELIA Watershed Committee email or the AWWA email
    address listed below to request that information. Please provide your name, the property
    owner’s name and the property address in your request.

    We urge all property owners to read the report as it’s filled with useful information, helpful
    remediation options and best practices for all kinds of issues. We also want to stress the
    importance of addressing issues promptly should any be identified on your property.
    Thank you again to all those who assisted with this survey and thanks to everyone for helping to
    keep our lake as clean, clear and beautiful as we possibly can.
