Community Meeting: Monday, May 1st at 7pm in the Woodinville Library meeting room.
Water Lilies - treated last year (2016) - waiting to see how things look when the lilies come back up this spring.
See the water lily page for more info.
Flooding update (04/16/17):
185th only saw minor flooding during the worst storms again this winter (one instance where the water level was over the road). The lake level is currently a bit high and we will continue to monitor it.
Milfoil Update (04/16/17):
Even with several weeks of below freezing temperatures and a frozen lake for most of January, the milfoil didn't seem to die back much. We need to discuss treatment options at the meeting in May.

Who we are:
Friends of Cottage Lake (FOCL) is a non-profit, community-based group committed to improving and defending the health and continued enjoyment of Cottage Lake in Woodinville, WA.
We are currently working with King County to apply for grant money to help fund various lake improvement projects. In the summer of 2005, our lake was chosen as a recipient of a Centennial Clean Water Fund grant—this grant targets the phosphorus problem and funded water quality monitoring and community outreach programs for 5 years.
FOCL is also working with the community to deal with the water lily problem and the Eurasian Milfoil infestation on Cottage Lake. See the links for more information.
