On February 22, 2021, LWVN hosted for a Roundtable Discussion on the Preservation and Use of Crystal Lake to explore how to balance the competing interests regarding Crystal Lake – the preservation and sustainability of the Lake, and the use and enjoyment of the Lake by the general public.
The discussion began with a presentation by the Crystal Lake Conservancy on the environmental sustainability of the Lake, and went on to explore questions such as:
- How the rules and regulations regarding the use of the Lake for swimming, boating and fishing compliment the environmental concerns regarding the use of the Lake?
- How do they compete with those environmental concerns?
- Do the current rules and regulations concerning the use of the Lake best meet the desires of the general public to use the Lake as a resource for recreation?
