Algae Blooms caused by leaves in the lake
Posted on Aug 2nd, 2016
After enjoying the trees that are painted with the beautiful colors of fall leaves, those leaves come to paint the ground.  No one enjoys picking up leaves, and that’s probably why many residents are inclined to let them blow into the lake.  However, in checking with our lake biologist, we find that leaves in the lake decay into nutrients which contributes to algae blooms in the spring.
Boaters Use of Paved Drive to "Bailey's" Store
Posted on Aug 2nd, 2016
For years, many residents of the Lake Bella Vista development have patronized the gas station and convenience store still often called “Bailey’s” on Belding Road, by boat and by walking up the paved drive from the lake to the convenience store.  The lake frontage adjacent to the convenience store is still owned by the Bailey family, but the convenience store owner (now American Gas and Oil) has a permanent easement from the dock to the convenience store facility.  It is the Lake Bella Vista Improvement Association’s position (and that of the convenience store owner) that residents of the Lake Bella Vista development have the right to temporarily moor their boat at the lake within the easement and to walk up to the convenience store and back.

Hydrant Flushing
Monday, October 17th to Monday, October 24th
The LBV Water Dept will be flushing hydrants, weather permitting, beginning on Monday October 17 from 9 AM to 5 PM.  This flushing process is done twice a year to purge the water mains of sediments and rust deposits.  The water is safe to use, however, it is recommended that you do not launder during the flushing hours due to staining potential.  If you notice discoloration in your water, turn on your cold water faucets and let the water run until it's clear.
