Watercraft Registration:
All watercraft need to be registered at no cost to the owner in order to use a watercraft on the lake.  The watercraft must be removed from the area at the end of each day if you have not applied and paid for a docking slot (see above).  Watercraft left overnight will be considered abandoned, which could result in the watercraft, and any oars etc. being confiscated or the owner could receive compounding fees, and the watercraft not being released until the fees are paid.  Contact Ken Richardson at 303-532-6069 to register a boat.  

Fish Patrol:
You can fish the annual Fishing Season for free.  All you need to do is volunteer for fish patrol.  You can choose one day a week or be a substitute when regular patrol is unavailable.  It’s a great way to get outdoors and meet your neighbors.  If you are interested, contact Ken Richardson at 303-532-6069.  

Pelican Patrol:
The HOA has an RC Hydroplane Boat that is used to haze the Pelicans so they do not get comfortable on the Lakes as they can consume around 9 pounds of fish a day per bird.  This activity was approved with the USDA Wildlife Service that oversees the Migratory Bird Act.  If anyone is interested in helping operate the boat (sorry, no kids), please contact us at email info@myspringvalley.org for more information.

Rules & Regulations:
See the updated rules for Spring Valley in Policy Number 810 – SVPORC PROPERTY RECREATIONAL REGULATIONS under the declarations and policies tab.  All members are responsible for being familiar with and following these rules.  Members are responsible for ensuring they are with their guests at all times and that their guests also follow the rules.  

Ice Fishing:
Remember ice fishing is only open when there is a green flag flying on the island.  However, you still need to proceed with caution and at your own risk! Go to the following web site for ice fishing safety tips:
