Pine Lake City makes smart ecological decisions. The Pine Lake community is concerned about environmental issues.  Classes for students who learn about the solutions and remediation methods.  Student receives certificates for completion of the course.  The students research and explore solutions including community gardens, creek remediation and open space planning.  Drinking water quality is frequently tested and reports are distributed in the community bulletins. Animal and Pest control are managed by community volunteers and contractors. The beach walking trails, and fishing access are maintained by the city.

Geologic survey of rock deposits at the shoreline. Five samples were taken from random locations around the lake.



The sampling results found three rock types; Rhyolite, Tuff, and Gabro were the most common types found.
1. Rhyoite is a Felsic, extrusive lava rock with Aphantic texture.
2. Tuff is Mafic, intrusive magma rock with multi-texture.
3. Gabbro is Mafic, intrusive magma rock with Porphyritic texture.
The remaining rock samples had the same properties.
