LOVE NEWMAN LAKE
A VOLUNTARY COMMUNITY EDUCATION PROGRAM
PRESENTED BY THE NEWMAN LAKE PROPERTY OWNERS ASSOCIATION
DO YOU LOVE NEWMAN LAKE??
Do you enjoy lake life– boating, fishing, swimming, bird watching, etc.? Us too! That is why we have started the LOVE Newman Lake Program. The LOVE Newman Lake Program is an educational initiative started by local property owners to improve the water quality of our lake.
Newman Lake’s water quality needs your help. By reducing our phosphorus inputs into the lake, each of us can help reduce algae, some of which can be toxic. Algae lessens the quality of our water and negatively impacts the activities we all enjoy
While our local Flood Zone District Advisory Board works with the county on specific tasks to clean up our lake (oxygen and alum input, milfoil control, etc.), there are plenty of actions EACH of us can do to help improve our water. Easy stuff, like scooping our dog’s poop, changing our fertilizer regimen, using phosphate free soaps and detergents, etc.
Are you willing to learn what voluntary steps you can take? Join us! Read about the programs below and decide how you and your neighbors can help!

LAKE CARE OK’D
The Spokane Conservation District, the Inland NW Land Conservancy and the Newman Lake Property Owners Association are providing a voluntary program to help property owners improve their impact on the lake’s water quality.
Local volunteers from the Inland NW Land Conservancy will help you find solutions and improve your impact on the lake. If you accomplish 80% of the actions reasonably attainable on your land you earn a LakeCare OK’d yard sign. Find out how to schedule a visit and get your sign.

RIPARIAN RESTORATION & EDUCATION
A variety of past and current land uses within the Newman Lake watershed have contributed to a steady degradation in our local water quality. This has resulted in erosion and sedimentation, nutrient loading, loss of lakeshore vegetation, wetland destruction, and contaminated storm water runoff.
In order to improve water quality and public health in these degraded areas, The Lands Council and Spokane Conservation District will be be helping private landowners at Newman Lake interested in implementing lakeshore restoration activities on their properties; and provide information on proper household fertilizer use and disposal, septic system maintenance, pet waste management, and lawn clipping disposal. These efforts will help stabilize the shoreline, filter pollutants coming off the land, and reduce elevated water temperatures.
If you are interested in having someone conduct a site visit to better understand the potential for voluntary restoration planting of your shoreline property, please contact
Kat Hall at
or contact Spokane Conservation District
