LMVA North Beach Parking Lot Under Construction

With recommendation from the LMVA Long Range Planning Committee, the Board of Directors has recently approved a capital expansion project for the administration parking lot in the North Beach facility.  In accordance with the LMVA Vision/Mission Statement and considering the Long Range Master Plan, this project will accomplish 3 important goals. 

1.     Improve ADA accessibility to the North Beach facility.

2.     Improve ingress and egress to the North Beach facility.

3.     Upgrade aesthetics within the property.

The project, approved in December 2016 will be completed in time for the 2017 summer season.  Members are encouraged to be patient during construction as parking at North Beach will be restricted to the Fishing and Upper parking lots.  Please click on the link below to view detail regarding the project. 

The LMVA Board and staff are proud to provide the LMVA membership with another enhancement to your beautiful facilities here at Lake Mission Viejo.

Trout Stocking for March 7th/8th - cancelled


Golden Algae continue to be present in Lake Mission Viejo, with low counts being recorded with every sampling.  The March 8th Trout stocking, rescheduled to March 7th, has been cancelled due to ongoing fish stress.  (Spreading to over 20 states in the last 32 years, Golden Algae has not been shown to be harmful to humans or other mammals.)  The March 22nd stocking, the last of the 2016 - 2017 season, will be cancelled unless fishing conditions improve by March 15th, the deadline for placing an order.  Lake Mission Viejo water temperatures typically become too warm to stock Trout after March each year.

We are monitoring lake conditions closely and have been in working with leading Biologists to find a solution to the Golden Algae problem.  HAB (Harmful Algal Bloom) specialists have been contracted to conduct tests on water samples from the Lake to aid staff in controlling Golden Algae blooms.



Advanced Purified Water

LMVA's APW (Advanced Purified Water) ceremonial first water was put into the Lake on October 10, 2016 at noon, after 2 long years of planning, engineering and construction.  A few acre-feet of APW have been put into the lake to test the equipment

The new system will, for the first time ever, fill Lake Mission Viejo with up to 114 million gallons of Advanced Purified Water annually in lieu of potable water. This new system will make Lake Mission Viejo the largest swimmable lake in the state and perhaps the nation, to use advanced purified water.

“We at Lake Mission Viejo Association are proud to be leading the way for other swimming lakes in the state, and we’re proud that we are doing so with such strong support from our community,” said LMVA Board President Kevin Pennington.
