HARVEYS LAKE —Fred Lubnow, of Princeton Hydro, announced at Tuesday night’s council meeting that there are two water-quality projects due for completion at the lake this year: the Old Lake Road project and the Floating Wetland Island project.

Both should be finished in early June, Lubnow said.

During the Old Lake project, storm valves will be installed underground to remove dirt and solids, and to prevent phosphorus from entering the lake and promoting the growth of algae.

The Floating Wetland project will place five floating wetland islands in various locations within the lake. Originally 11 sites were selected, but six were eliminated because they contained pond weed — a rare species of aquatic plant life.

Lubnow will be provide project updates for the public at the borough’s April council meeting. He also will present a map and photos of the floating wetland islands.

In addition, the borough’s Environmental Action Committee holds its meetings at 7 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month at the Municipal Authority Building. The public is invited to attend.

In other matters:

*Councilwoman Michelle Boice said the borough is pursuing the collection of delinquent garbage bills. Boice said “something has to be done” (regarding the unpaid garbage bills).

*Mayor Clarence Hogan thanked Michael Rush for his donation of four commercial combination printer/copier/fax machines to the borough’s police department.

*On Friday, the Harveys Lake Fire and Ambulance Co. will hold its Lenten fish fry. The cost for adults is $8; $5 for children. The meals can be pre-ordered by calling Charles at 760-5506, April at 574-1453 or the borough’s fire station at 639-5167.

The next council meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. April 17.
