LAKE USE SURVEY
The next week for the lake use survey is August 9 - 15.¬† This survey will be used to measure what types of users frequent the lake and what types of activities are conducted.¬† Each observation period for the survey takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and involves counting things such as cars in parking lots, boats on the lake, and people in the parks.¬† If you would be interested in conducting one of the observation periods for the upcoming survey period, or any survey periods in the future,¬†please contact the Project Coordinator.
