Large Scale Lake Planning
This report documents the results of a watershed-wide survey of Kansasville residents living in the Eagle Lake Watershed. The study was conducted in the fall of 1991, and revealed a high degree of environmental awareness among these residents. While passive recreational pursuits dominated the lake-related activities (viewing and walking), many respondents used the lake for swimming and boating, Most expressed concern over poor water quality and a declining fishery, even though frequent anglers were a minority of the surveyed population. This study found that most residents were concerned about nonpoint source pollution from the watershed. Further investigation of these pollution sources is recommended, to be followed, where necessary, by the development of appropriate ordinances to protect the lake.
