Why become an LPA member? Because your lake needs you!
Be a member whether you live on the lake, visit the lake, or own property in its watershed. We envision a beautiful, healthy lake teaming with fish, and each of us have a vital role to play in protecting its water quality and recreational value.
Membership dues fund projects that strengthen our communication network, educational outreach, and the protection of the lake.
Membership also includes our educational lake publications and timely alerts requiring action. You will receive:
Three informative "LAKESIDE" Newsletters (May, June, July)

An LPA membership benefit is the "opportunity to participate."
Volunteers make our association stronger in every way.

Our Current Projects
LPA's volunteer Board of Directors work on
critical topics that affect your lake and community.
Annual Lake Directory
There's no other resource like it - locate names and addresses of every lake property owner around Lake Poinsett and Lake Albert.
Aquatic Invasive Species Awareness
Let's take that extra step to prevent invasive plants, animals, and pathogens from entering our lakes. We are working with South Dakota GF&P on ways to remind everyone to CLEAN, DRAIN, DRY and Dispose.
LPA Publications and Social Media
Our newsletters, brochures, website, Facebook Page, and e-Lake News subscription provide exclusive information on lake issues you can't get anywhere else.
Water Quality Testing Project
Our volunteers take water samples from the center of the lake and five shoreline locations. We partner with the South Dakota DANR for testing nutrient pollution, E.coli, and the toxicity level of blue-green algae. More on WQ
