The annual membership meeting of the Big Chippewa Lake Association was held at the Brandon City Hall on Saturday, June 4, 2016. The meeting began at 9:30 AM. Topics discussed at the meeting included the treasurer’s report, website update, fish stocking report, report on water quality and water level readings and the condition of the lake access. There was an election of Board members and a door prize given away, zebra mussel traps.
At 10:00 Patrick Schultz spoke on the topic of maintaining your septic system and new regulations for septic systems. Mr. Schultz is an Environmental Planning Technician with Douglas County Land & Resource Management.
You should consider putting a Zebra Mussel monitoring device on either your lift or dock.
Take a scrap piece of PVC pipe, maybe a foot or two in length, and cap one end of the pipe. Attach the capped pipe to your dock or lift however you choose but make certain the pipe is submerged, about a foot or so off the bottom of the lake, preferably in the shade, so the Zebra Mussels can find their way into the pipe. Inspect the pipe on a regular basis and report anything you think could possibly Zebra Mussels to the DNR.
