Locate Fire Pits Away from the Shore and Dispose of Ash
The leftover ash from burning wood is very high in phosphorus. If the fire pit is located
near the lake, rain can wash the ashes into the lake.
• Locate the fire pit at least 50 feet away from the lake; and,
• Remove ashes from the fire pit to prevent the nutrient-loaded ashes from being
blown or washed into the lake.
