The Holloway Lake Association Protects your Reservoir

Through regularly scheduled meetings and newsletters, the Holloway Lake Association keeps concerned citizens informed and in touch.  Please support these efforts by becoming a member of the Holloway Lake Association. Together we can make a difference!

The Holloway Reservoir needs your help to remain Genesee County’s precious recreational area.

HELP US PRESERVE HOLLOWAY!  JOIN THE HOLLOWAY LAKE ASSOCIATION!

Issues we are working on:

The Water – predictable levels and good quality
The Regulatory Agencies – boating safety
The Environment – industrial and other pollution
Shoreline Erosion
Parkland Preservation
Richfield Landfill issues
Boating, Fishing, Swimming, Camping, Picnicing or Hiking along the reservoir

Holloway Today: Challenges and Changes

Shoreline Erosion:  Picturesque Goose Neck Point becomes narrower each year. Trees are tipped over into the water in many areas. The Reservoir becomes increasingly wider but more shallow. What will it look like in 50 years?

Water Levels: There are many demands on the waters of Holloway. The City of Flint requires constant flow for sanitation plants. Down-river recreational users call for increased summertime flow. In the dry summer months, low water levels on Holloway harm recreation, wildlife and the ecosystem of the water.

Environmental Concerns: The potential impact of The Richfield Landfill on Holloway Reservoir and its surroundings demands activism by the public to insure a safe environment and to maintain the natural beauty of the area.

The increase in the numbers of seagulls requires efforts to control them in order to prevent the damage they cause to property and their contamination of the water.

Regulatory Intrusion: The Holloway Reservoir is heavily regulated by Government, and citizen activism is required to balance the competing interests of the environmental, industrial and recreational communities.

 

 

We have been given permission by Nate Harasim to use his song “Holloway Cruise” on our website.  Nate was just a young teenager when he wrote this song while sitting on his dock in Zone 4.  It is simply beautiful!  Make sure you have your speakers on!
