LMSA has pledged to do its part to keep Indiana’s waterways free from harmful chemicals, excess nutrients and debris, and to implement practices that prevent the spread of aquatic species. We have identified opportunities to control pollution associated in several areas including:
- Storm Water Runoff
- Sewage Facilities
- Solid Waste
- Liquid Materials
- Boat Cleaning.
Our members have agreed to a set of pollution prevention practices and placed them into the bylaws of our organization. Our policy implements practices to control nonpoint source pollution and helps us focus on being an environmentally conscious member of our lake community. Here is a link to what you need to know regarding your activities including maintenance and cleaning while keeping your boat at LMSA: Pollution Prevention Practices.
