Who We Are
We are a group of neighbors concerned about the water quality of the Loch Haven Chain of Lakes. To improve the overall health of the lakes, we have created a non-profit organization and gotten to work.
Why It's Important
A patchwork of agencies and jurisdictions oversee regulations applying to stormwater management, water quality, and lake health. Community involvement ensures we are doing all we can to keep our lakes healthy.

Florida's budget for 2023-2024 is now final and designates $1,350,000 to develop a plan for improving the Loch Haven Chain of Lakes!!!!! This is a big WIN for our Lakes. Thank you to everybody who wrote emails and letters to our elected officials and pushed to have this legislation approved. We could not have done it without YOUR SUPPORT!
The budget specifically allocates this money for "Development of a Flood Control and Long Term Nutrient Management Plan with Capital Improvement for the Loch Haven Chain of Lakes." St. Johns River Water Management District will implement the plan and our group looks forward to meeting with them on next steps.
We expect part of this funding will be spent to conduct a nutrient load study, which will be the starting point for developing a master plan to improve infrastructure and/or procedures. This improvement in infrastructure will then support higher water quality in our lakes and will help protect neighborhoods from flooding. This is a long game and we need your continued support to get to the finish line. In the meantime, we are thrilled to announce this new and exciting development!
