The Spring Lake – Lake Board was established in 1997 in accordance with Michigan’s Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act. The Lake Board includes a lakefront property owner, representatives from each of the municipalities bordering Spring Lake, and representatives from both Ottawa and Muskegon Counties. Several board members are lake residents. Since its establishment, the Lake Board has implemented several programs to help improve conditions in Spring Lake. Funding for the project has been derived through special assessment of benefitting properties around the lake.  Management activities on Spring Lake are coordinated under the direction of the lake board’s environmental consultant, Progressive AE. This website includes information about Spring Lake and ongoing lake management activities.

The current improvement program on Spring Lake ends in 2023. All lake residents will receive written notification of the proposed scope and cost of future improvements.
