Water quality in Lake Placid’s lakes is generally excellent, but as with any other natural system, it must be protected. Activities such as rain water from roadways and parking lots and overzealous fertilizing are just a couple of activities that add nutrients and contaminants to the lakes, threatening our enjoyment of these lakes. Public awareness of these threats is the first step to their control. Monthly sampling by local Florida LAKEWATCH volunteers provides invaluable information about the condition of our lakes. The bulk of the lake management information used by the Highlands County Lakes Management Program is collected by LAKEWATCH volunteers.
Lake Placid’s lakes will be a main attraction for generations to come only if we take care of them. If you would like further information about Lake Placid area lakes, contact the Highlands County Lakes Manager, Clell Ford, at 863-402-6545.
