New Information for Spring of 2015:

Important Information to Review:

The Lake Mitchell Improvement Board uses the services of Restorative Lake Sciences L.L.C. and its Water Resources Director, Jennifer Jermalowicz-Jones in developing and executing its aquatic plant control program. More can be learned about RLS at Information about Lake Cadillac and its milfoil control program can be found at  

E-Mail Newsletter -- If you received the printed newsletter, please consider saving the board the $2 it costs to print and mail this newsletter by reading it online at (We would rather use our money to fight milfoil than print and mail newsletters). All the contents of the newsletter are available online plus photos, minutes of our meetings, and features about Lake Mitchell not found in our annual newsletter. Email us at and we will add your email to our list which has over 350 addresses.

Those on our email list are notified about important Lake Mitchell information including days when the lake will be treated as well being alerted to upcoming meetings. If weather events such as floods, ice storms, or heavy snows occur, which could damage property, emails may be sent.  These are especially appreciated by Association members who are not lakeside residents. The email list will not be sold or offered to anyone and will only be used for Lake Mitchell Improvement Board and Association business.

The Lake Mitchell Improvement Board also has a mobile website. This site is designed specifically for viewing on your mobile smartphone (iPhone, Android phone). The mobile website has all the information found on the full website. There are no graphics or photos on the mobile site, so it's fast to load and easy to read on small screens.
