Lake Board Information

At the request of residents, a Lake Improvement Board was convened for Meadow Lake in 1983. The Lake Improvement Board was established as a mechanism to address apparent water quality concerns within the lake. Later that year, the Meadow Lake Improvement Board began a study to quantify the water quality issues impacting Meadow Lake and determine what actions, if any, were required to correct these issues. For more information regarding this study and for Lake Board assessment information, follow the links below.
