                             unnecessary power or overly tight turns to avoid large wake generation. Obviously, safety is a
                             concern, and the boat operator should return immediately to the fallen person(s) if they are
                             injured or are in an unsafe position. But, anything a boat operator can do to minimize wake size
                             is required. All boats that produce an excessive wake may be cited.

                               LAKE POLICY FOR PROTECTION AGAINST QUAGGA AND ZEBRA MUSSEL INFESTATIONS

The goal of this policy for Lake Wildwood is to ensure, within practical and financially acceptable parameters, that our lake remains free of Zebra
and Quagga mussels. In order to do this, we must control boat access through our security gates, and clearly define and enforce all new and old
boating rules and registration procedures set forth in the Lake Wildwood governing documents.
Maintaining a 24/7 in-depth inspection program, and providing quarantine procedures for all boats entering the gates, would require training and
funding that would be an inordinate leap for our association. Therefore in light of our low calcium levels, which may lower the risk of mussel
colonization, it is felt that a simpler and less costly system can be implemented and enforced.
The following are recommended policies:

ALL BOATS ENTERING THE LAKE WILDWOOD COMMUNITY (INCLUDING KAYAKS AND CANOES, ETC.) WILL RECEIVE
MUST ENTER THROUGH THE VISITOR/BOAT LANE AT THE NORTH GATE AND WILL BE SUBJECT TO A VISUAL EXTERNAL
INSPECTION, AS DESCRIBED IN LWA SECURITY PROCEDURES. AT THE GATE.

Security will maintain a computer log of all boats that are inspected, including CF number(if any), and ownership and interview
information.

All boats
    1.   Gate officer will interview the driver trailering the boat to determine if the boat has been in any waters known to be infested by mussels.
         The officer will question the driver as to where the entering boat has been, referring to a list of infested locations, and guidelines provided
         by the Lake Committee regarding other bodies of water.
    2.   If it is determined the boat has been to launched in infected waters or based on visual inspection may be carrying Quagga or Zebra
         mussels, the boat will not be allowed to enter the Lake Wildwood community. It will be moved to the north gate parking lot, and will not
         be allowed to enter the Lake Wildwood community until authorized by a Lake Committee member.
    3.   The gate officer will call a designated Lake Committee member who will determine what further action is required.
    4.   If the Lake Committee member determines that the boat might be contaminated, it will not be allowed to enter the Lake Wildwood
         community until it has been decontaminated at a certified decontamination station.


Guest Boats: Gate officer will also log
    1.   The sponsoring member and relationship to that member
    2.   Boat owner’s name and address
    3.   Reason for entering LWW the Lake Wildwood community

    1.   Gate officer will log the following information
             a. Name of party trailering the boat

             c. Boat owner’s name and address

           2.   Only boats with a current Association boat registration shall be stored in Meadow Park or the
                Commodore Park Marina. Subject to availability, the General Manager may restrict storage by an
                owner to only one location. In order to rent a space in Meadow Park or the Commodore Park
                Marina, an individual must designate the boat owned by the individual that will be stored in that
                space and must register that boat with the Association at or prior to the time of renting the space.

           3.   Members with existing storage space will be offered the opportunity to renew their annual storage
                contract before the space is offered to others. Right of first refusal for one specific storage space
                shall be granted those Members renting space for the current year.

           4.   Boat spaces at the Marina or Meadow Park may not be transferred or subleased to any other
                person. Only boats owned by the Association Members (known as “lessees”) that signed the
                original space rental agreements may occupy these spaces. In the event of the original lessee’s
                demise, only the lessee’s immediate resident family may continue the lease.

           5.   The General Manager may require members to move their boats to alternate spaces if such moves
                are in the best interests of the Association.

           6.   The Administration Office will administer waiting lists for boat spaces on a first come-first served
                basis. The General Manager will develop a department procedure to insure that spaces are
                occupied as soon as they become available.

           7.   Covers for boats stored in the lake or at Meadow Park shall be earthtone, gray, or a conservative
                color which is approved by the EMO.

           8.   Covers for boats stored in Meadow Park and the Marina shall be maintained in good condition.
                Loose, torn, or frayed covers shall be prohibited.

Authority:      Policy 9.30.
