The Mission of The Rock Lake Improvement Association is to promote and generate positive action on issues concerning the preservation, protection,
and improvement of Rock Lake.

On RLIA's survey to local residents, 58% of respondents felt that lawn fertilizers/pesticides negatively impacted Rock Lake. Another factor associated with lawns, which contributes excess nutrients to the lake, is leaves. Help RLIA raise awareness on this issue. Please review the following information;
Leaf-free Streets for Clean Waters
Love Your Lakes, Don't Leaf Them
City Drains that Flow Directly to our Lake

RLIA received a lake management planning grant from the DNR. A grant advisory committee representing community stakeholders has met over the last year and developed the attached DRAFT of Vision, Goals, and Recommendations for the 2017 Rock Lake Management Plan
