Healthy Shorelines

Our lake is at risk for phosphorous build-up caused by erosion and shoreline practices that are not healthy. To this end, we can take measures to prevent erosion, runoff and unhealthy shoreline practices that are disruptive to water quality and fish habitat. One way to practice sound shoreline practices are to utilize native shrubs and plants that will improve the health of our lake.  For more information on shoreline ‘best practices’, please consult the following sources, by clicking on the article name.
