New member looking for advice! Western North Carolina neighborhood (50 homes) HOA lake (2 acres) hasn’t been dredged in 30 years. There is algae/vegetation building up in the middle and around the perimeter of the lake. Very minimal creek flow into and out of the lake.

Original community residents claim it used to be 12’ deep but now is 6’. Should I focus on chemical treatment, or maybe aeration/fountains, or would a $200,000+ dredging project solve it better in the long run?
