Spring Lake Sewer Filter and Tank Cleaning

Spring Lake Sewer Company is in the process of having filters and tanks around the lake cleaned. To do that the pumping company may need to drive to some of the tanks. If you find that your property has been disturbed, please contact Dick Gooch and we will try to make sure your property is back to its original state. 

The SLSC also wants residents to know that in the process of cleaning filters and tanks around the lake, the homeowner's spigot may be used to spray the filter. If a resident does not wish this method used, please call Carolyn Strickler at 515-491-8184. Thank you.

Work Day at the Community Building

The community building fix-up and clean-up day was held April 29. We had a great turn out on a rainy Saturday morning.  Various workers installed 3 new doors, built storage shelves, cleaned and organized the interior of the building, and removed debris around the building.  Work was also done repairing the roof on the valve building.  A special thank you to Jon and Kerry for providing a fantastic lunch.

Annual Spring Lake Clean-up Day
Please Continue to Keep our Lake Clean

The lake clean-up day was held May 6 on a beautiful Saturday morning.  A small but mighty crew picked up trash along the grounds, roadsides, beach area, and the lake shore.  The ladder was installed on the swim platform.  The bulletin board at the main entrance (that had been vandalized) was previously removed.  Please help to continue to keep our lake and grounds clean and safe by removing and disposing of trash properly.

Strategic Plans

Spring Lake, Inc. and the Spring Lake Sewer Company have drafted Strategic Plans to serve as short, medium, and long range guides as our community looks towards the future.  Both plans address financial, environment, technological, safety, and quality of life issues for members.  In reading the plans it should become evident that Spring Lake should have a bright future for those issues that we know will be part of the coming years.  What is harder are those variables that are unpredictable like catastrophic storms or mandated changes to environmental issues including waste water standards.  Both plans are regularly reviewed, sections implemented, and adjusted annually.
