The Prairie

In an effort to maintain a healthy lake, it is imperative that we rebuild the plant life in Lake Manitou.  The 43-acre “Prairie” located east of the Moose Lodge was dedicated as a No-Motor zone several years ago in an effort to create a plant filled area for fish to bed.  At one time, this naturally shallow area was full of bull reeds and eelgrass and was easily identified as an area for motorists to avoid.  We need these plants to grow back in the Prairie!  The LMA board will again be placing 30 buoys around this area that now are lighted and state NO-MOTOR ZONE.  Please do not travel through this area and encourage other motorists to stay away from this zone as we hope to rebuild The Prairie.

Channel Dredging to Begin

You may have noticed mobilization of a barge and giant excavator onto Ford's Court this past week.  Dredging of the inlet to the 3rd channel is set to begin next week.  The spoils and sediment material will be removed from the lake and put on the barge then transported to the empty lot owned by Ed Lanuti at 2101 Ford’s Court where a second excavator will offload the material from the barge into a sealed truck to be hauled offsite. This process will continue until 1889 cubic yards of material has been removed. This will leave the nearly impassable channel 3.5’ deep by 35’ wide and 300’ long!  Please be patient and avoid this area while contractors are working, if possible.  Thank you LMA for continuing to improve our wonderful lake.
