Covekeepers are volunteers who monitor the Catawba-Wateree River Basin’s major lakes and investigate pollution near those lakes.
The Lake Norman, Mountain Island Lake, and Lake Wylie Covekeepers meet regularly to discuss specific issues, share updates, and learn from guest speakers. All Covekeeper meetings are open to the public.
The Lake Norman Covekeepers meet on the fourth Thursday of each month, usually at the East Lincoln Fire Department at 7 PM. The Lake Norman Lakekeepers are Ben Benoit and Bruce Andersen.
The Lake Wylie Covekeepers meet on the second Wednesday every other month (odd numbered months), usually at River Hills Marina at 7 PM. The Lake Wylie Covekeeper Action Group, which works on specific advocacy projects, meets on the even numbered months.
Mountain Island Lake
The Mountain Island Lake Covekeepers are invited to attend either the Lake Norman meeting or the Lake Wylie meeting. The Mountain Island Lake Lakekeeper is Chuck Myers.
