AsRA's Leanna Thalmann updated us on the on-going initiatives to keep Mirror Lake healthy and alive with continued efforts to focus on minimizing salt runoff into the lake.  Heavy concentrations of salt and chorlide will prevent the lake from "turning over" each year.  If the lake doesn't "turn over" and refresh, the levels of oxygen in the lake will severely diminish and impair or prevent the lake's being a habitat for lake trout and other cold water species.  A dead lake is not good for recreation, tourism and the economy.  Area residents are asked to take the Mirror Lake Salt Survey to guide AsRa and its partners on measures to take to maintain a healthy Mirror Lake (and other area waters.
