Lagoon Performance Update-Summer 2015
It has come to Management and the Board’s attention that some residents have expressed interest in pursuing a waiver system, which would allow persons over the age 18 to enter the lagoon during times of safety closure when the lifeguards have closed due to the drains not being visible from the deck. We understand and sympathize with your concerns. It is not enjoyable for anyone (especially the lifeguards!) when the decision must be made to take a safety break or close the lagoon to swimmers.
The maintenance team has worked very hard to improve the filtration system and water quality of the entire community, but in particular have focused on the lagoon. Since July, the lagoon has operated at near 100%, with brief closures taking place between 2-4 times within each month.
During holiday weekends when the lagoon was at peak use, with an estimated use of over 600 residents and guests, we are pleased to report that the lagoon remained open for the majority of the time, with only brief safety closures. Management has been in contact with surrounding facilities such as SAMLARC (Rancho Santa Margarita) and Woodbridge Village Association in Irvine, both of which have swimming lagoons. Both facilities have routinely been faced with similar closures during high use, and neither community allows a waiver system.
Management and the Board consulted with the Orange County Department of Health and Association legal counsel, regarding the lagoon closure requirements:
California Code of Regulations 65527 provides: “The re-circulation and purification system shall be operate and maintained so as to keep the pool water clean and clear. Under no circumstance shall  the pool be used if the main drain is not clearly visible from the deck. Such a pool shall be closed and shall not be reopened until the water is clean and clear, and upon specific written approval of the enforcing agent. If the pool drain is still not visible 48 hours following inspection and closure by the enforcing agent, the enforcing agent may order the pool drained as a safety precaution.
The Board consulted directly with the Orange County Department of Health and legal counsel and was advised that use of the phrase, “under no circumstance shall” as modifying “use of a pool”, set forth at 65527 above, is a clear indication by the Legislature that the provisions of Health and Safety code 115920 et. Seq., and the California Code of Regulations pertaining to same, cannot be waived. This interpretation is further reinforced by the directive in 65527 that, “Such a pool shall be closed and shall not be reopened until the water is clean and clear. Further, it is notable that no distinction is drawn as between adults and children. In other words, the law is unequivocal in that no person  shall use a public pool unless the water contained therein is clean and clear.
The Lake Forest Community Association staff thanks all residents for their concerns and their understanding. The staff did a fantastic job this summer and they look forward to many more years of good times, fun events, and great people at the Lake Forest Beach and Tennis Club.

A Note from Beemus
For the week of September 21st through September 25th Bemus expects to have nine employees onsite including 2 foreman, 1 commercial driver, and 1 irrigator. One to two of those will be installing remote control valves and reseeding some front yards on Twin Lakes, Lake Shore, and Lake Terrace through the next two or three working days. Once completed they will join the majority of the workforce doing trenching, sod-cutting, and irrigation retrofits to the removal  areas near Bywater and S. Canada.
We’ll be working from north to south starting with the areas on Bywater, working toward S Canada, then up through Murin Isle. Areas 64 -69 should have all necessary irrigation retrofits completed by Wednesday, September 30th. I will be placing an order for plants in these areas by the end of the week for delivery Tuesday, September 29th, so the crews can immediately shift over to planting. At that point our irrigators will continue on to Areas 70– 77 to make adjustments while the majority of the crews lay drip line and mulch in planted areas. Sep 21st–30th= Sod-cut and irrigation retrofits to all Phase 3 areas, Sep 30th–Oct 2nd=Planting Areas 64– 69 Oct 5th–14th=Lay drip line and mulch in Areas 64–69, Oct 15th–23rd=Planting Areas 70–77, Oct 26th–30th=Lay drip line and mulch in Areas 70–77.
Please see attached flyers    Map w/Planting Areas   and  LF Phase 3 Area
Have a great day!

Invasive Species Prevention Program: Before you purchase, sell and/or request to launch a new boat please be aware of the following concern. Invasive Quagga or Zebra Mussels are invading lakes and water ways throughout California. Both species can wreak havoc on the environment by disrupting the natural food chain and can contribute to the release of harmful bacteria that affect other aquatic species. The mussels can attach themselves to the hull, engine and steering components of a boat and cause damage.

Please be aware that Lake Forest Community Association requires a 30 day notice and inspection prior to launching a boat in our lakes.  This will include an inspection by Fernando Contreras, Association Lake Coordinator, which will include a visual inspection, questions regarding the boats origin and a request to have the boat cleaned per the Department of Fish & Game recommendations. If you sell or remove a boat including small craft, please contact the association to schedule an inspection prior to relocation or sale.  The Staff may delay the launch or sale of a boat so we encourage you to contact us prior to a planned purchase or sale. Also, please do not move kayaks or small boats between lakes. Please refer to the Department of Fish & Game website for a guide on “How to clean, drain and dry a boat” prior to a request to launch at the Beach & Tennis Club.  For questions contact: Fernando Contreras at or 949-837-6100.
