Long Lake Resident Online Survey

Long Lake residents had the opportunity to participate in an online survey that was part of Indiana University's (School of Public and Environmental Affairs) spring 2013 capstone course entitled, "Lake Management Associations: Developing Sustainability Guidelines.”  As our "living" lake management plan is updated over time, the responses of the 123 residents who took part in the survey which was mailed to 266 Long Lake residents, will definitely be taken into consideration.  For example, the ranking of the top four concerns were aquatic invasive species, lake pollution from agricultural runoff, pollution from shoreline residences, and shoreline owners understanding of issues.
