This does not relate to erosion that occurred during the flood and its aftermath. It involves erosion likely to occur in the immediate future as a result. This includes Secord primarily because of the water draw down and the likely duration of the lowered water levels. For example, most, if not all, seawalls are now totally above the waterline placing them at significant risk of blowing out from the bottom unless some additional actions are taken by the homeowner. There are other problems that may occur as well.


Secord Lake residents are encouraged to attend the erosion meetings in Beaverton or Sanford. Secord Lake Association Board of Directors has also been asked to assist at these meetings.  We will have representation at the Thursday meeting at a minimum.

Shoreline Erosion Engineering Fair

Talk to engineers and shoreline erosion experts free of charge about how to remediate your property and stabilize your shoreline. Bring photos of your property and erosion damage with you so they can view them and help you create a plan to slow the erosion taking place on your property.

This event is available to residents impacted by the Tittabawassee River flood at no cost to them thanks to a $100,000 grant from The Patricia and David Kepler Foundation.

12-June-2020: CANCELLATION of June Secord Lake Association Meeting

This notice is to advise you that our June Secord Lake Association Meeting, which was scheduled for June 20, is being cancelled due to the Governor's Executive Orders pertaining to Covid-19 and the requirements for gatherings of large groups. We want to ensure the safety of our members and our community and unfortunately, we do not have the capacity or tools in place to do so for this meeting.

We are planning to have our July 18, 2020 meeting as planned, dependent upon the Executive Orders in place at that time.

We understand that everyone is looking for answers regarding the dams and the future of our lake but at this time we are still waiting for information from the pending dam investigations that have been ordered by both the State and Federal Government. We are hopeful that by July we will have more details regarding these unanswered questions. In the meantime, please know the Secord Lake Association will continue to work towards the goal of restoring our waterways for everyone’s enjoyment.

Please continue to look for updated information regarding our dams by visiting the Secord Lake Association Facebook page or this website.


1-May-2020:  Check out the Spring 2020 newsletter produced by PLM Lake & Land Management Corp for relevant water management information and tentative treatment schedule


17-April-2020:  To be clear, info included in the May 2020 Newsletter under ‘SAVE THE DATES for our public meetings’ section are expected programming/ talking points during the Secord Lake Association Board Meetings.


Specific to the Goose Roundup efforts, the goose egg roundup collection dates were scheduled for April 18 and May 2. However, due to the Stay at Home Order and this is not an essential service the April date has been cancelled. Hopefully the May 2 date will be able to be utilized depending on if the Executive Order is lifted or that will be cancelled also.


Thank you to Marvin Ehlert for suggesting this clarification.
