Lake Stewardship Program
The Hagerman Lake Stewardship Program results from the efforts of The Hagerman Lake Property Owners Association (HLPOA). The program views lake stewardship from a landscape perspective where the lake is influenced by factors not only within the lake’s watershed but from far beyond.
This broader perspective houses the appropriate range of geographic scales from which to approach lake stewardship: a discrete “lake specific” focus that goes hand-in-hand with waterscape-wide awareness. It maintains the waterscape perspective crucial to effective lake stewardship. This is especially important when it comes to addressing the issues of aquatic invasive species (AIS).
Stewardship of Hagerman Lake is an ongoing endeavor coordinated and administered by the HLPOA.

Water Quality Reports
Water quality tests are performed bi-annually. Testing includes measuring water clarity, temperature, disolved oxygen and a number of chemical properties. Reports over the past years can be found below.
Aquatic Plant Survey
In 2018 Whitewater Associates performed an extensive aquatic plant survey on Hagerman Lake.
This survey divides the lake into several hundred points. At each point, plants are sampled, identified, counted and recorded. The survey provides a baseline for the diversity and location of aquatic plants in the lake. In summary, no invasive species were found.
The entire report can be found here. It is…extensive.
