News from the Friends of Green Lake (FOGL):
At its Nov 22 meeting, the Friends of Green Lake decided to cancel the Dec. 3 work party because there is not a significant accumulation of milfoil.
Members also decided to gather more data about the discharge of groundwater and surface water from the Green Lake Village development (former Vitamilk Site). FOGL is concerned that the planned discharges to the stormwater system will further decrease the input of clean water to the Lake. A few more volunteers are needed to collect algae samples and/or do microcystin analysis (contact Gayle Garman at friendsofgl [at] gmail.com). The Mayor’s office noted that revisions to Seattle’s Shoreline Master Plan, including Green Lake, are available for public comment until Dec. 9 here. FOGL will not meet in December. The next general meeting is January 24, 2012 (fourth Tuesday).
