Lake Board Information

At the request of residents, a Lake Improvement Board was convened for Wabeek Lake in 1989. The Lake Improvement Board was established as a mechanism to address apparent water quality concerns within the lake. Later that year, the Wabeek Lake Improvement Board began a study to quantify the water quality issues impacting Wabeek Lake and determine what actions, if any, were required to correct these issues. For more information regarding this study and for Lake Board assessment information, follow the links below.
