Miami Lakes, FL - The Town of Miami Lakes and its Neighborhood Improvement Committee (NIC) will celebrate July as Lake Quality Awareness Month to raise awareness about the quality of our lakes and to recognize the important role of the community in maintaining our lakes. It is clear that our residents enjoy the Town’s 23 lakes, but we also have to protect them. Lakes also serve the important function of absorbing rainfall and runoff to prevent flooding, and provide homes for precious wildlife.
Because lake pollution is caused by so many different activities, a brochure has been developed with tips and information on the best management practices for lakes. The Town and its NIC encourages residents to learn more about the importance of storm water education, how to prevent water pollution, and best lake maintenance practices. The brochure and video on is available on the NIC page of the Town’s website at www.miamilakes-fl.gov/nic
The mission of the Town’s NIC is to recommend, promote, and create projects and activities that will beautify and improve all neighborhoods in a collaborative and comprehensive manner. NIC also promotes efforts that encourage a physically active, sustainable, and engaged community in Miami Lakes.
