The first Sunrise Lake Summit will be held Aug. 31 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Old Town Hall along King's Highway.
"Sunrise Lake is a major resource to the Town of Middleton and we need to continue as a community to keep it as clean and safe for all. Although our lake is in pretty good shape we do have some issues that we need to address," Mullen wrote in an e-mail invitation.
Louise Bourdeau, who moved to South Carolina but summers on Fox Road, said she'd be interested in listening to how fellow property owners and visitors plan to protect the lake — especially cleaning up the diapers, empty bait containers and trash they found at the fishing site.
On Friday, she enjoyed watching her grandsons, Robert Mitchell, 6, and his brother, Matthew Savoie, 9, both of Farmington, fish along Route 153. They all had concerns about keeping the lake safe for all.
During town meeting in March, residents overwhelmingly agreed to add $10,000 to the fund to fight exotic weed growth while accepting $2,400 in grant money. This money paid to treat the water and for divers to remove invasive plants this summer.
After state Department of Environmental Services officials used global positioning systems to locate the "Milfoil hotspots" Monday, Mullen said divers will return to focus on those areas in the end of September.
Mullen said some residents are concerned about how some boaters operate dangerously or drive too fast around the shallow lake which is full of kayaks, swimmers and rocks.
