Clear Lake and Lake Mangonia are more than scenic bodies of water; they both also critical components of the City’s water supply. Water from these lakes enters our water treatment plant, is treated and eventually becomes your drinking water.
As a resident of West Palm Beach, you have a vested interest in preserving the quality of our water. To help you better understand the steps the City is taking to protect our water and to learn how you can help, we’d like to share some information with you.
Please make sure you take the following steps to help us keep our lakes clean and protect our drinking water:
Remove debris, litter, vehicles, boats, vegetation, fences, sheds and other structures from the City’s property along the lake’s shoreline
Remove all pipes that discharge into the lakes
Clean up all spills and leaks on driveways
Pick up all pet waste
Use low phosphorus or phosphorus-free fertilizers. Limit pesticide use. Dispose of all pesticides and herbicides properly
Direct downspouts and gutters into lawn and plant beds
Remove grass clippings so they don’t wash into the lakes
Thank you for being a responsible resident and a good neighbor. If you have any questions or comments please call (561) 822-2222.
