The 200 property owners around Pattison Lake in Thurston County, Washington, need a way to communicate and inform one another about the health of the lake, and to discuss what part each can play in monitoring for toxic algae, milfoil, zebra mussel, etc. in the face of a changing climate and environment. Such factors as leaking septic tanks, fertilizers containing phosphorous or nitrogen, and pesticides can be washed into the lake and cause these serious issues. If we can get a majority of the lakefront property owners to join an email listserv and discuss these causative factors, we could make some progress in keeping our lake healthy.
