Lake Association of White Lake, NY Fund

Date Established: November 21, 2022

In 2022, a group of interested homeowners met and decided to form a lake association to address some concerns, including the proliferation of invasive weeds, the effects from the growing number of geese and weeds on water quality and the lake’s recreational appeal. Thus, the Lake Association of White Lake, NY (“Association”) was born. Our mission: To become a single, organized voice to more fully represent our community through coordination with local, state and federal officials on matters related to the health and welfare of lake residents and visitors. In addition, to act as a mechanism to raise and deploy funds to support the monitoring of water quality and projects designed to maintain or improve the quality of the White Lake ecosystem.

What are some of our key initiatives since our founding?

We have become a member of the New York State Federation of Lake Associations (NYSFOLA):  link here

We participate in the Citizens Statewide Lake Assessment Program (CSLAP) program. As of Summer 2023, five White Lake residents were trained to conduct testing of the water quality of our lake. Between June – Sept 2023, trained volunteers spent several hours each Sunday for eight testing sessions.  We will participate again in this program during Summer 2024. Learn more here.

We collaborate with the Catskill Regional Invasive Species Partnership (CRISP) on invasive species management priorities.  Learn more here.

To name a few areas!
