Water Quality Issues

Lake levels are controlled by the DNR.  Drawdowns have been prohibited because it is thought they are injurious to lake habitat.

Leaving long grass or better yet planting native plants along your shoreline creates a buffer. This buffer filters runoff to decrease the amount of pollutants entering the lake. The buffer also slows erosion of your property by the long roots of the native plants holding the soil in place. When mowing right down to the water’s edge, you create a direct path for pollutants to enter the lake, an inviting area for geese, and a weak shoreline is very susceptible to erosion. Healthy Lakes Grants are available to help cover the costs of redoing your shoreline.
