LakeSmart Tips

LAKESMART  TIPS were developed by Sue Gay, a LakeSmart volunteer with the Belgrade Lakes Association (BLA). They illustrate simple steps lakeside homeowners can take to capture rainwater on land so as to keep it from polluting lake waters.  We are pleased to share these Best Management Practices (or BMP’s) with lake stewards who want to conserve water quality, protect wildlife habitat and preserve property value. Thanks also to Logan Parker of BLA, for formatting the Tips.
