The Lake Advisory Committee meets monthly on the first Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm in the Lodge meeting room.

Activities Include:  

         Periodic review of the entire Lake shoreline to determine erosion-control needs.  Reports are filed with the WPOA Board and the General Manager.  

         On-going assessment of the needs of the lake, dam, and access areas to determine short and long range needs for repairs and improvements.  A report of this assessment led to the establishment in 2010 of the lake, dam, and access assessment.  The committee makes recommendations to the board regarding the use of those funds.

The ecological "health" of the lake, including recommendations for reducing effects of siltation was completed, and the full report ("Lake Waynoka Protection and Enhancement: Study Results and Recommendations") was received in January 2012.
