I am excited to announce the launch of ELIA's major, multi-year initiative to positively impact the quality of Eagle Lake. Known as the Eagle Lake Protection Program, this process will operate much like a healthcare model. The first step, gathering data, is now underway through our partnership with Dr. Marcel Dijkstra and the Environmental Research and Innovation Center (ERIC) at UW Oshkosh. Board members and concerned community members are already at work with an expanded water testing and analysis program.
Our board of directors has adopted this vision statement for our new endeavor:
“The goal of the Eagle Lake Protection Program is to make fundamental changes to Eagle Lake and its watershed to enhance the enjoyment of the lake for current and future generations.”
We urge everyone in the lake community to join us in positively impacting the quality of Eagle Lake, and we thank you for considering this special donation.
Brian Younger, President, Eagle Lake Improvement Association
