algae sampling

The algae sampling taken by TLBP from July 16.  Sights taken were off north Lake Marina and at Wulfy Beach.  Antitoxin A was less than 0.2 at both locations.  Total Microcystin was less tha 0.3 at North Lake Marina and was 0.3 at Wulfy Beach.  The antitoxin A levels are in safe levels but the Microcytin is above safe levels for pets and children less than 5 to drink the water without recommended treatment.  So take needed precautions as the toxin level can vary throughout the lake.


Oregon Lakes Assoc. and Portland State are bringing a class to Lakeside on how to monitor lakes in Oregon to gather data for future improvements and to document problems.  This could be very useful to our efforts for the betterment of the lake.  It is a free class and they will give free monitoing equipment and a guide book.  It will be at TLBP office across from Hennicks August 4 from 9am to noon. to register PLEASE RSVP TO :                website;                                                                                         email;



TLA had a very successful outreach onJuly3.  Our Snack Shack sold out of burgers and hotdogs and made serious dent in ice cream.  The Fire Fighters had to get refill on oysters.  The fireworks had an excellent display.  The entertainment of Tommy Mason solo, the Local Honey Band were excellent and had people dancing.  Taylor Winona gave a awsume rendition of the Star Spangeled Banner.  We appreciate all the volunteers without whom it would not have been possible.  Especially Jullie Robbers and Blume Bauerfor organizing the food and entertainment.  Ken Robbers for set up and delivery of equipment and tent for the snack shack.

Due to the fact that our scheduled board meeting happens to fall on July 4 this year we have decided to cancel the meeting.  The next board meeting will be board elections on August 1.  Remider to any interested in becoming board members please let me know at

Water sampling

Water samples taken by TLBP at Wulfy Beach and North Lake Resort have shown toxins within safe limits.  This was done June25.  This is only sampling and due dilligence is recommended to avoid any blooms seen and prevent pet drinking lake water.  All lake water should be treated to standards before use.

Who is looking out for our lakes?

May 2018


It could be you! At an Oregon Lake Watch (OLW) training session, we can train you to monitor water quality and to find aquatic invasive pests like zebra mussels and aquatic weeds before they become a problem. Sound like a fun and worthy cause? If so, we have training sessions scheduled in:

Sign up or request training at other locations on our training session sign up form

At the training sessions you'll learn:

  • how to survey and identify aquatic plant, crayfish, snail, and mussel species
  • how monitor and interpret water quality data lake water clarity
  • document and view your findings using the iNaturalist and Lake Observer mobile apps

We'll provide the equipment necessary for monitoring,  Once you've completed your training and complete two sampling trips per year, you'll receive free membership with our partner organization, the Oregon Lakes Association. If you aren't sure if you want to commit to volunteering with OLW, but want to learn more about invasive species and water quality, come to one of our trainings!
Please consider joining us and pass this invitation along to your friends. We need your help in looking out for Oregon's Lakes.

Thanks, hope to see you soon.

Weed Barrier

There will be a demonstration on how to build a weed barrier on May14 at 10AM.  Blume Bauer and Julie Robbers will produce a U tube video of the event for those who want to learn to make their own.  The barrier will be 10'x10' and expandable to 10'x20'.   That is about as big as 2 people can easily handle.  If anyone wants to watch the demonstration it will be at my dock 3422 S Tenmile Lake boat access.  For those who are unable or won't build barrier TLA  can build a limited number at cost plus small donation.  Cost will be on video from demonstration.
