Welcome to our website!

The Long Lake Governmental Lake Board was established under Part 309 (Inland Lake Improvements) of Michigan’s Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act. In accordance with the act, the Long Lake Governmental Lake Board includes a lakefront property owner, a representative from each local unit of government abutting Long Lake, the county drain commissioner (or designee) and a county commissioner.

In 2016, the Long Lake Governmental Lake Board approved a new five-year lake improvement program that includes aquatic plant control, aquatic plant control oversight/coordination, information and education, and water quality monitoring. The program began in 2017 and will continue through 2021. Program activities in Long Lake are coordinated under the direction of the lake board’s environmental consultant, Progressive AE.
