PLM Lake & Land Management Corp. is excited for the opportunity to work with Edenville Township and the residents on Sanford Lake this summer in controlling exotic, invasive plants; weed & algae concerns and improving the water quality for all. For more information about them, please visit their website.


Additional information about the Sanford Lake Management and Treatment Program for 2016 can be found in the Sanford Lake Newsletter published by PLM Lake & Management Corp.

Treatment of Sanford Lake will take place on May 24, 2016. Read and observe the notice here: Sanford Lake Posting Sign 24 may 2016

If you have any questions, contact a member of the Weed Committee listed in the Contact Us.


Please consider the 10 ways listed below to protect Sanford Lake and Wixom Lake:

  1. Don't use lawn fertilizer that contains phosphorus.

  2. Use the minimum amount of fertilizer recommended on the label - more is not necessarily better.

  3. Water the lawn sparingly to avoid washing nutrients and sediments into the lake.

  4. Don't feed ducks and geese near the lake. Waterfowl droppings are high in nutrients and may cause swimmer’s itch.

  5. Don't burn leaves and grass clippings near the shoreline. Nutrients concentrate in the ash and can easily wash into the lake.

  6. Do not mow to the water’s edge. Instead, allow a strip of natural vegetation (i.e., a greenbelt to become established along your waterfront. A greenbelt will trap pollutants, provide wildlife habitat, and discourage nuisance geese from frequenting your property.

  7. Repair eroded areas on your yard or along the shoreline and, if possible, infiltrate drainage from your downspouts rather than letting it flow overland to the lake.

  8. Don't dump anything in area wetlands.

  9. If you have a septic tank system, have your septic tank pumped every 2-3 years.

  10. Don't be complacent - our collective actions will make or break the lakes.
