HAPPY FALL TO MY FELLOW LAKE SHIRLEY RESIDENTS!
October 27, 2014 - It's that time of year again when we lower our lake to help control our weed growth and also to give us the opportunity to clean up. NOW is the perfect time, before the snow, to get your beach areas raked. All the leaves, pine needles/cones that settle on the bottom turn into muck if left there. They then make a perfect growing condition for weeds. [More]

IMPORTANT: UPDATE ON LAKE SHIRLEY ALGAE BLOOM
UPDATE: October 16, 2014
Good News. The Lake Shirley water advisory has ended. I want to thank you all for your kind words, support, understanding and continued efforts of the Lake Shirley Board of Directors.
From Michael Celona, Mass. Dept. of Public Health:
A water sample was collected from Lake Shirley on Tuesday, October 14th. Laboratory analysis showed 44,000 cells/ml, below the MDPH guideline of 70,000 cells/ml. Microcystin was detected at 3 parts per billion, less than the MDPH guideline of 14 parts per billion.
According to MDPH guidelines, two samples collected a week apart with levels below the guideline levels are required before the advisory can be lifted. The result above is the second low sample, so the advisory can be rescinded.
