ATTENTION GLPA MEMBERS AND LAKE RESIDENTS:
Following GLPA annual meeting last August member concerns were expressed regarding effects of copper retention in lake sediment from invasive weed treatment with copper sulfate based products. GLPA had prior discussions with Gun Lake Improvement Board on this matter. GLIB is the sole invasive weed treatment assessment authority, funder, and treatment executor. GLIB was sympathetic to concerns and agreed with the need for testing to determine the extent to which concerns were legitimate based on data. However, they pointed out their yearly budget did not include any funds for testing. GLPA recognized the need for immediate testing in line with our mission to protect the lake. GLPA also had concern about public trust in GLIB hiring the same company treating the lake to test effects being a conflict of interest. GL PA felt a third party without an agenda would be an important and objective authority to bring legitimacy to the results of any testing and subsequent decisions regarding invasive lweed treatment. GLPA made the decision to fund and monitor sediment testing using an independent lab and testing firm in line with our mission to protect the lake. The GLPA undertook this project to avoid any appearance of non-data driven influence or agenda in gathering, analyzing, and sharing results. GLPA shared these test results with GLIB to inform future treatment decisions and posts them for public view on our website myglpa.com. Your GLPA at work.
