pH is measure of how acid (sour) or basic (sweet) our water is in our lakes, rivers, and streams. It is a water quality parameter that is monitored on a regular basis at 10 different locations in our watershed by the Glen Lake Association. In this video you will learn how the GLA monitors this important aspect of our water quality and what are the natural conditions in our waters that keep our lakes from going “sour” or undergo acidification. Our waters are naturally able to withstand the acid rain/snow. Watch this video and learn how our waters are naturally “protected” unlike some lakes in our country.
Meet Bill Witler, our board chairman for 2016-17.
Meet Bill Meserve at the Glen Lake Dam on the Crystal River
Stewardship plays a critical and grassroots role for protecting the Glen Lake/Crystal River Watershed. Doing the right thing for the lake is not always followed for a variety of reasons. In this video, the Glen Lake Association has recognized the Lymans’ home on the east shore of Big Glen as being careful to be ecologically respectful for not only their landscaping, but building their house as a LEED certified home. As you will see, the Lymans are passionate about protecting the water and setting a great example for all of us to follow that sets the stage now and for future generations that living on the shoreline has its rewards and its responsibilities. If you want more information about living in harmony with nature and protecting the water of Glen Lake, please contact the association and we will be happy to help you accomplish our common goal.
