Attention All Homeowners:
The Golden Algae is a serious threat to our fish population. It is a microscopic algae which lives undetected until the algae blooms and releases a toxin which kills the fish. A foam with a golden hue may or may not appear confirming the presence of golden algae. Unfortunately, three lakes in our area are experiencing outbreaks, Eastlake Village in Yorba Linda, Rancho Santa Margarita and just last week, Lake Mission Viejo. These lakes have lost thousands of fish and are currently working diligently to stabilize their fish populations. Please be aware of the following signs of a Golden Algae bloom:
Unusual Fish Activity: The fish will seek oxygen and large numbers will remain near the surface, in the shallow water, near the aerators, or weirs. The fish will be lethargic and not dart away.
Unusual Waterfowl Activity: Increase in waterfowl population and concentration near surface fish.
The LFCA Staff is on heightened alert and will patrol the lakes several times per day. Staff is prepared to treat the areas and if you see or suspect unusual fish or waterfowl activity please contact the Clubhouse Front Desk at 837-6100 and provide the specific location. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

ATTENTION ALL BOAT OR KAYAK OWNERS!
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 Mark Hartjes, Association Maintenance Supervisor 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.
