The Smith Mountain Lake Association, which represents its members on issues that affect Smith Mountain Lake and its watershed, is seeking new members.
SMLA, the oldest and largest volunteer group in the SML area, lists its membership at about 1,200. A $30 family membership entitles members to discounts at some lake-area businesses. Membership dues are tax-deductible.
The interests of its members are advocated using education and information to influence constructive outcomes. SMLA works with government, business, educational and other organizations to monitor the health of the water at SML. The group is equally active with issues involving waterfront property and recreation. Areas of focus include water-quality management; buffer landscaping committee; shoreline management plan; Royal Flush pumpout service; Save our Streams; and invasive-weed monitoring.
For more information or to join, call 719-0690.
