Info from Ben Peterson on keeping the lake healthy:

Here is my program’s web page http://www.kingcounty.gov/environment/animals-and-plants/noxious-weeds.aspx .  Go to this page and scroll down to find specific information on weed control http://www.kingcounty.gov/environment/animals-and-plants/noxious-weeds/brochures-reports.aspx.

 

Also, here is a .pdf version of an aquatic weed ID booklet that we put out.  …

 

Here is a link to King County’s web page on Haller Lake: http://green2.kingcounty.gov/SmallLakes/lakepage.aspx?SiteID=17

 

It includes some historical data on water quality.  The Science Dept. here at King County has a Lake Stewardship program wherein volunteers collect daily or weekly data about their lake and the information is incorporated into the county database.  There is currently no volunteer for Haller Lake.  Here is their web page that tells about their program: http://www.kingcounty.gov/services/environment/water-and-land/lakes/lake-stewardship.aspx...

 

In terms of aquatic plants, they too affect the health of the lake, although not as directly as water quality issues (such as temperature, nutrients, oxygen, etc).  Here is the WA Dept. of Ecology aquatic plant ID guide: http://www.ecy.wa.gov/Programs/wq/plants/plantid2/index.html ….
