Ruth Lake Property Owners Association

Our goal is to preserve the environment of both the lake itself and the surrounding area. Ruth Lake has a very slow turnover of water and is, as a result, very vulnerable to environmental problems. So far we have been fortunate and there has been no noticeable deterioration of water quality.
