Lake Management Plan
In March 2005, the Big Sandy Lake Association participated in the Initiative Foundation’s Healthy Lakes and Rivers Partnership program along with seven other Lake Associations in Itasca and Aitkin Counties. BSLA representatives attended two days of training on strategic planning, communication, and nonprofit group leadership. Representatives of many state and local agencies, as well as nonprofit organizations also attended the training sessions in order to offer their assistance.
A detailed plan was developed in 2007 and revised in 2010. It provides a brief history of the area, a description of the lake and a set of goals and actions plans for:
* Fisheries Management
* Aquatic Vegetation Preservation
* Water Quality
