Silver Lake Water Quality Management

Silver Lake’s water quality is dependent on many factors. The lake is officially managed by the Silver Lake Improvement Board (SLIB), a governmental board established by the Michigan’s Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act (NREPA, Public Act 451 of 1994), Part 309. This management can include regular monitoring of the water quality and the development of programs/treatments designed to improve the lake and it’s fishery. The SLIB also has the power to assess property owners with lake frontage or deeded access to Silver Lake for its operational funds. There are roughly 525 properties assessed by the SLIB.

The current firm hired by the SLIB to manage Silver Lake is Restorative Lake Services (RLS). A new 5-year management plan has been developed by RLS for approval by the Improvement Board. The complete RLS 5-year plan can be found here.
