This was and is the result of hard work and patient application of good lake management practices on the part of the board. Back in 2008-2010 Lake Magdalene was in big trouble, and only getting worse. I am grateful to see the progress and improvement documented in these reports."

Recently some residents have found gators in the lake near their homes. To have a gator removed the homeowner must be the one to call the trappers if the gator comes within 100 feet of their house. Once you have spotted the gator then you may call the trapper at 1 (866) 392-4286 to have them bait the gator for removal. Your neighbor or someone living two doors down from you cannot be the one to call unless they have spotted it within 100 feet of their home and then they would have to call. This is a free service
**In the interim A and B Aquatics is available for lake cleanup such as weeding, spraying and removal. Please contact Aaron Jackson at (813)239-7801
