Gladwin and Midland Counties, Michigan
Thank you for visiting the Wixom Lake Improvement Board website. This website was created to provide information about ongoing management activities on Wixom Lake. Find the latest updates on our News and Info page.
The Wixom Lake Improvement Board was established under Part 309 (Inland Lake Improvements) of Michigan’s Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act. In accordance with the act, the Wixom Lake Improvement Board includes a lakefront property owner, a representative from each local governmental unit around the lake, the drain commissioners from Gladwin and Midland Counties and representatives of the county board of commissioners for Gladwin and Midland Counties. The lake board administers a lake improvement program on the entire portion of Wixom Lake east of the M-30 bridge.
A primary focus of the program is the control of nuisance aquatic plant growth in Wixom Lake. Plant control activities are coordinated under the direction of the lake board’s environmental consultant, Progressive AE.
The Wixom Lake Improvement Program has been ongoing since 2002. In 2016, public hearings were held and the project was continued for an additional four years (2017 – 2020). Click here to review current budget.
