Your Lake and You
The link below is a brochure called “Your Lake & You.” It was prepared by the North American Lake Management Society.
We are providing this information as an educational resource for PML members. It should be noted; on page 8 of the brochure, there is a sidebar discussion on the potential impact of fireworks. Most of the chemicals mentioned have been tested for extensively on our lake. None have been detected at levels that indicate any problems. In fact, most of those chemicals were hundreds of times lower than the strictest standards set my state and federal agencies.
