Lake Water Quality
Recent studies indicate that Fox Lake is eutrophic to hyper-eutrophic and capable of a rapid transition from a clear water macrophyte dominated ecosystem to a turbid algal dominnated system. Our goals include regularly monitoring phosphorus and oxygen levels.
Fox Lake's water quality is dependent on many factors including the lake's aqua plant maintenance, area snowfall, lake ice cover, wind, and rainfall.
The FLILPARD's Drew Creek Report is currently our most major watershed and lake quality initiative.
