Lake McCarrons Management Plan

CRWD and its partners completed the Lake McCarrons Management Plan in 2003 and identified several lake management concerns, including high phosphorus loads at certain times of the year, invasive plant species, and vegetation overgrowth on the west end of the lake. Improved wetland systems, fish and wildlife protection, management of the internal phosphorus load and water quality improvements are among the many goals addressed in the plan. Several of the management plan goals have already been met, and total phosphorus concentrations remain below the acceptable levels outlined in the plan.
