Practical Lake Protector Tips

We all care about the health of our lakes but who is looking after lake health? Governments of all stripes are cutting back on the people and programs that used to protect our lakes and give us up to date data on lake health indicators. Lake associations can help fill this void but only if all of us step up individually and become Lake Protectors.

What can we do to make a difference? The Coalition of Haliburton Property Owners' Associations (CHA) has some of the most knowledgeable lake health scientists in Canada as scientific advisors and we asked them that the question.

Based on their advice here are the most powerful steps you can take to protect your lake:

  1. Keep your septic system healthy; septics are the # 1 contributor of phosphorous to our lakes in Haliburton County. The more phosphorous the greater the chance of an algae blooms.
    • take 20 minutes and watch “Poop Talk“  and then take action by:
    • Keeping anything that can kill bacteria out of your septic system
    • Minimize and spread out the use of water
    • Have your system inspected by an inspector who will take the lid off and do a proper physical inspection
    • Have your tank pumped every 3-5 years
  2. Renaturalize your shoreline – natural shorelines deliver incredible benefits
    • Filtering out pollutants such as phosphorous before it gets into the lake
    • Providing habitat for all sorts of life that supports healthy loons, frogs, fish etc. Remember 80-90% of all life in your lake depends on natural shorelines
    • Learn about the importance of Natural Shorelines by watching the Ribbon of Life video

    Keep in mind even a small area with native plants will help. If you have grass to the lake – simply stop cutting all or part of it and nature will re naturalize the area over time.
