LAKE PARK, Iowa (KUOO) – A public informational meeting regarding plans to improve water quality and recreational opportunities at Silver Lake will be held next week in Lake Park.

Results of a study over the past year involving members of the Silver Lake Steering Committee, Technical Advisory Committee and a consulting team with Wenck Engineering will be presented at the November 14 meeting.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. at the Lake Park Community Center.

Community members will also have an opportunity to provide input and ask questions about the long-term management and improvement plan.

Silver Lake was added to the state’s list of impaired waters in 2002 due to high nutrient levels, non-algal turbidity and high levels of algae.

Officials say the overall goal of their efforts is to get Silver Lake removed from the impaired waters list.

The lake is a vital recreation destination in Dickinson county, hosting more than 41,000 visitors each year, according to statistics from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.

Silver Lake is known for boating, fishing, relaxing and wildlife watching. Officials say the lake and watershed improvements are expected to increase visitation and provide better opportunities to visitors.
