Our Lakes: Water Quality Report
The Lakes at Dobson Ranch are tested monthly to monitor water quality and aquatic life in the lakes. These tests are done by Dr. Amalfi with Aquatic Consulting and Testing, Inc. These tests inform us on whether we need to treat our lakes for harmful algae, find out what types of fish need to be stocked, and other important factors. This information is reviewed by our Water and Lake Management Committee who then make recommendations to the Board of Directors as needed.
Many of our 18,000 residents agree that the most outstanding feature in the neighborhood is the lakes. In fact, Dobson Ranch is the largest lake community in Mesa, AZ. Out of 100 acres of common areas, 78 acres are comprised of the lakes.
We have seven artificial lakes throughout the Ranch where there are walking paths, catch and release fishing and boating. Fishing and boating licenses are required. These are available at our Recreation Department at La Casita.
Feeding of wildlife (fish, fowl, feral cats or turtles) is not permitted in the common areas/lakes.
