The Pentwater Lake Improvement Board was established under Part 309 (Inland Lake Improvements) of Michigan’s Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act. In accordance with the act, the Pentwater Lake Improvement Board includes a lakefront property owner, a representative from each local unit of government abutting Pentwater Lake, the county drain commissioner (or designee) and a county commissioner. Click here to view the Pentwater Lake Improvement Board goals.


A demonstration project using DASH (diver-assisted suction harvesting) will soon be implemented in Pentwater Lake. DASH work will focus on removing the invasive plant starry stonewort from the lake. In addition, a small infestation of another exotic, invasive plant Cabomba was recently detected in Pentwater Lake. On September 11, 2018, the lake was treated to control the spread of the plant.
