Long Lake Improvement and Sanitation Association has been advocating for Baxter’s sewer connection for many years. Because of the number of major stakeholders involved, including Lake County, the Village of Round Lake, the Village of Fox Lake, and the Lakes Region Sanitary District, the process was frustrating and took longer than we had hoped.
Nevertheless, LLISA leadership is pleased with this outcome. LLISA volunteers have spent countless hours on this endeavor and are eager to now turn our attention to other issues critical to the health of our lake; specifically phosphorus and blue-green algae, the focus of our continuing work with Sierra Club. We will also now be able to focus more attention on our most critical asset and primary charge, maintaining the lock and dam so that we can all continue to enjoy Long Lake.
