Other Lake Issues & Concerns

In addition to Fanwort, the LMG has identified many other issues that need to be addressed in order to keep the lake healthy including:

  • American Lotus – an invasive weed
  • Stormwater & sediment pollution
  • Increasing native vegetation
  • Algae blooms

Ess Group Inc. has been hired to assist with the development of a five-year strategic plan for the current conditions at Hickory Hills Lake.   Over the course of the 2020 Spring/Summer seasons, ESS will be conducting surveys, collecting samples and analyzing the condition of the Lake in order to provide us with a comprehensive plan that will include management recommendations and associated costs. The plan is expected to be completed by December of 2020.
