Report problems

Have you experienced a problem which you feel could be water level related (high or low), ice damage, or some other water level problem on the Crystal River, Big or Little Fisher or Big or Little Glen? If so, help the GLA document these issues, please send an email to or call the GLA office at 231-334-7645, with the following information:

  • Name
  • Address
  • E-mail (if you would like a response)
  • Body of Water
  • Location on Water (North, Northeast, East, Southeast, etc.)
  • Wind Direction/Velocity (If wind related)
  • Issue

This information will be gathered by the Water Level Committee and submitted to the Technical Committee, which was established by the recent Circuit Court order to deal with Glen Lake and the Crystal River water levels. The Technical Committee consists of members from the Glen Lake Association (GLA) at large, the Crystal River Association (CRA), the GLA Water Level Committee, the National Park Service (NPS), the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), and the Office of the Leelanau County Drain Commissioner. The Technical Committee will be able to use this data to develop proposed changes to the court ordered algorithm for better control of water level, timing of changes in water level, etc. Your assistance is critical in accomplishing these improvements. Thanks for your input!
