The Lakes Committee

The Lakes committee is an open committee whose role is to involve Lake Lorelei Property Owners in the process of developing, monitoring and researching programs, projects and procedures for the protection and preservation of the Lake Lorelei Lakes.


The goal is to develop strategies for programs, projects and procedures for the protection, preservation, and enhancement of LLPOA lakes.  Areas of concern to include shoreline Maintenance, Water Quality Testing,  Lakes Treatment Programs, Dredging Program, Lake Safety, Lake Valves Maintenance, and Dam & Spillway Maintenance.


The lakes committee has set up sub committees for each of these areas to ensure the goals of the Lakes committee are accomplished:
