The Lake Saint Catherine Conservation Fund has started up a second major aeration project on the Little Lake, celebrating this important moment in its lake restoration program with a ribbon-cutting event at lakeside. This is the second aeration project initiated by the group on Little Lake. State Representative Robin Chesnut-Tangerman was on hand to cut the ribbon for this new lake restoration project. This new project has 14 diffusers distributed over almost 20 acres of the western portion of Little Lake. The Conservation Fund’s first project covered almost 15 acres with 13 diffusers and has led to increased depth to soft bottom of the lake from 4 feet on average to 8 to 9 feet after four seasons of aeration treatment. Along with greater depth to soft bottom, the Little Lake is experiencing resurgence in the fish population and a gradual reduction in aquatic weed congestion. The Conservation Fund is eager to see this new project reverse the degradation process on the western portion of the lake as has happened on the eastern portion.
