Environment Committee Update

Benefit of Regular Septic Pumping
Scientists at the leading NJ Lake Management company report that with regular septic pumping we can reduce the nutrients flowing into our lake by 20 to 30%.  What a difference that would make to the health of Cupsaw Lake.  As a rule, we should be pumping our septics at least every three years.  Please help.  Spring is a good time to get this done before we allow runoff to add nutrients to our lake that cause excessive growth of weeds and algae. 

Aeration Upgrade
We and several lake management experts have concluded that our aeration system is undersized.  As a result, the benefits of improved dissolved oxygen are offset by the mixing of nutrient rich bottom water in summer months.  We are going to add diffusers to the deep end to correct this problem.  We will test to determine the benefit of this upgrade.
Blue Dye
The use of blue dye was so successful last August that we plan to use it again this year.  In fact we plan to apply it in the Spring and then have a booster shot in the Summer.  The purpose is to block the UV rays to slow the growth of weeds and algae.  It is food grade, thus safe for our swimmers.

On behalf of the Dam Committee…

Please DO NOT disturb the rocks on the face of the dam. They are there to protect the dam from erosion. 

They are a specific type of rock which the lake has to purchase at great expense.  Throwing them on the ice is not acceptable.

Ice Safety Rules

As colder weather is upon us, the ice on the lake should always be considered as unsafe, and members should use extreme caution at all times.
Use of the lake is considered AT YOUR OWN RISK, and parents should talk to their children about ice safety. We strongly caution you against the use of motorized snow blowers on the lake.
1. You must be a member of CLIA to be on the frozen lake. All guests must be accompanied by a member with a current badge.

2. Ice Skating is at a member’s own risk. Please wait until ice is at least 4 inches thick.
3. Ice fishing restricted to area south of East Point and at least 50 feet from shoreline.
4. No power augers are permitted on the frozen lake, holes must be filled in before leaving.
5. No bonfires are allowed on the frozen lake.
6. No motorized vehicles of any kind are allowed on the frozen lake.

Letter from CLIA Nov 22, 2017

Dear Cupsaw Members,

As 2017 comes to an end, the CLIA Board would like to thank all the volunteers, groups, committees, and members who gave so generously of their time and expertise. One of our most important and final projects for this year, the resurfacing of the deep end wall by the diving area, was partially funded by WAA (Women’s Athletic Association). A big thank you to that organization! Please continue to check the website and email newsletters for fun winter activities.

We wish you all “Happy Holidays and a Happy and Healthy New Year!”

The CLIA Board
