Barnes Lake Management District Steering Committee
The Tumwater City Council created the Barnes Lake Management District (LMD) in 2004 following the approval of a citizen petition of lake property owners to the Tumwater City Council to improve aquatic conditions around the lake.
In August 2005, the Tumwater City Council appointed a Steering Committee, which serves to advise the Council on planning, project implementation, and the allocation of assessed funds. The Steering Committee represents the interests of all property owners and residents within the LMD. Steering Committee members represent varied interests, are spatially distributed around the lake, and all share a common concern for the health of Barnes Lake.
Some of the current issues and opportunities the Steering Committee addresses include management of aquatic plants, noxious weed prevention & eradication and vegetative debris removal; environmental education; and wetland habitat management and preservation.
