You may have noticed some activity on the lake initiated by Barnes Lake Improvement Board. Among these efforts in 2022 are:

  • Spring Phosphorus water sampling, Cooperative Lake Management Program
  • Chlorophyl Sampling, CLMP, by lake volunteers, throughout boating season
  • Watershed Study, conducted by Clarke Aquatics
  • Secchi Disk, Water Turbidity Depth measurements, CLMP, by lake volunteers
  • Inlet Channel Dredging (Conducted by Savin) and Spoils Removal
  • Summer Phosphorus water sampling, CLMP, by lake volunteers

We have experienced algae issues just after ice out on Barnes Lake during the last several years. The Lake Improvement Board has scheduled Clarke to spray for algae control & other weeds this week by Thursday, April 28, 2022.
Also note that there have been reports of outboard engine overheating due to shallow waters at south end of lake, caused by sediments plugging of cooling system. It is advised to use your trim systems to run above sediment until further notice.

Burns Rolland, Chairman of Lake lmprovement Board
