The Glen Lake Protective Association (GLPA) is undertaking important work this summer to update the Glen Lake Watershed Plan. The GLPA, the Town of Queensbury, and the NYSDEC have recognized the need for a comprehensive approach to control invasive species, address human activities that affect water quality, contribute nutrients and pollutants to the lake, and develop a long-term plan to protect and improve the lake’s water quality. The Chazen Companies (now LaBella Associates) has been contracted to guide and assist the GLPA in this effort.
The participation of Glen Lake residents is key to the success of this management plan. To that end, there will be two action items this summer for which we earnestly request your support and participation: (1) a lake-wide septic system inventory, and (2) a lake user survey.
Lake-wide Septic System Inventory: A properly functioning septic system is a fundamental component of addressing human impacts on water quality. To gather information about the septic systems at our lake, LaBella Associates has prepared a 2-page survey that will ask you about the age, size, location, and maintenance of your system. The Inventory will take 5 to 10 minutes to complete. It will be mailed to you in April in a self-addressed stamped envelope. We ask that you complete the inventory to the best of your ability and return it by Monday May 23rd. If you prefer to complete the survey online, visit the GLPA website find the link to Glen Lake Septic Survey To reward your efforts, you will be entered into a drawing and you could win a $100 or $75 gift certificate at the Docksider Restaurant.
Lake User Survey: It is also important that we gather your first-hand knowledge about Glen Lake. Later this summer, you will receive a survey to gather your perceptions about the state of the lake. You will be asked question about water quality and the presence of invasives, as well as questions about who uses the lake, how the lake is used, and of concerns or ideas you have about the present and future of our precious resource, Glen Lake.
