Big Star Lake Association

Welcome to the Big Star Lake Association site.   We hope the information here will be useful and look forward to your input and additions.  Please be patient as we continue our renovation.  Some sections are available to access.   Exciting changes are being made and we are in the process of making improvements to the site. Stay tuned as we undergo a new look.


August 26th, 2015 The second treatment results for Milfoil treatment were very positive with a significant response to the application. Jennifer Jermalowicz-Jones, Restorative Lake Sciences, reports that the third treatment has been scheduled based on some new “hot spots” that have popped up. Included with her report were two site maps that show the recent activity. Larry Treece Sr., President, BSLA

July 22, 2015 The lake was inspected and treated for Milfoil Monday getting its second round of treatment. The areas treated on Monday morning were mostly centered around the North Bay Floating Docks and over near and in the bayou area. Many of the boats were moved to accommodate the this second treatment. Special thanks to Bev V. for hers service and assistance in moving the water crafts. We should get a full report and follow up regarding this treatment in about 3 weeks. I will work with the township to get the report posted on their website. Thank you to Dick Hayes for helping out as well. Larry Treece Sr. President

June 23, 2015 Mike Solomon from RSL treated the Milfoil weeds in several areas today. The Bayou area and the North West Bay. The North West Bay was the biggest treated area for many of the residents there were concerned with the weed growth. As many feared, there was a large patch of Milfoil there. RSL will likely be back in a couple weeks to treat around the floating docks. When they re-treat those areas around the docks some boats may need to be moved for the treatment. RSL posted notices and spoke to several owners that they need to stay away for 24 hours. Make sure you do not have any contact with the water in those areas. As more information becomes available we will let you know. Thank You Larry Treece Sr. President

June 22, 2015 The Weed Treatment that was scheduled for this week has been postponed due to the storms. I will let everyone know when they reschedule the treatment. Have a good week. Larry Treece Sr. President
