What's New!


August 2022

Our new dam has been in operation for just over one year. Lake levels were maintained at historically normal levels with dam adjustments being made for periods of extended rainfall.

During this fiscal year (July 2021 – June 2022) we completed the security fencing around the dam site. Security cameras and warning signs were also placed on the site. The native Michigan wildflowers that were planted last year were in full bloom this season. These plantings help prevent soil erosion and beautify the site.

We recently mailed our annual newsletter which includes details of GLDA income and expenses. Some of the large expense items were onetime expenses, e.g., fencing, security cameras, engineering, etc.

Lastly, we are looking for Gull Lake residents who have an interest in becoming a Gull Lake Dam Association Board member. If interested, please contact us though this website (use "Contact" at top of page).

For the Gull Lake Dam Association,

Gull Lake Dam Association, VP

We have begun our 2022 Annual Donation Campaign. We are requesting $50 per household (same as last year). These funds will be used for dam maintenance, grounds maintenance and liability insurance with any remaining funds going toward a reserve for any future major repairs. You can donate via this website (credit card). If you prefer to donate via check, you can use the form on the annual letter we have recently mailed to all Gull Lake residents.
