Water Quality Study

LOWA is proud to be conducting a 22 week water quality study from the dam to the 42MM between this summer and next summer. We aim to prove to the EPA that our Lake does not belong on the 303d list of Impaired Bodies of Water!

Cars 4 Heros

LOWA was excited to partner with Cars 4 Heros to provide a vehicle to a veteran in need over the Shootout weekend. NFL Chief’s DeRon Cherry presented the keys and several gas cards to Joseph Presnel, the unsuspecting veteran who arrived with the color guard for the ceremony.
