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.

In 2014, the lake board held a public hearing and approved a new five-year lake improvement project for Pentwater Lake (2014 to 2018).  The program includes aquatic plant control, plant control inspections and coordination, and water quality monitoring. Project activities are coordinated under the direction of the lake board’s environmental consultant, Progressive AE. This web site includes information about Pentwater Lake and ongoing lake management activities.
