Thank you so much for submitting your question.

I'd like to ask for clarification about the type of lake that this lake management plan is for. Can you clarify if this lake has a lake level control structure that raises and lowers the lake level seasonally, or if it has a natural lake level.

Also, please feel free to reach out directly to Erick Elgin, my colleague who is based at the MSU Extension office in Newaygo County, for more information on this question, if that is helpful to you. His contact information:
