Our staff conduct surveys on lakes and streams to document and assess conditions related to water quality.
Shoreline Surveys -
Shoreline surveys are typically performed for lake associations to provide a lake-wide assessment of the shoreline. Every property is surveyed for signs of nutrient pollution, erosion, greenbelts, altered shorelines, and other relevant factors. Survey information is used to work with individual property owners to address any problems on the shoreline. Information about individual properties is kept confidential.

Aquatic Plant Surveys -
Aquatic plant surveys are typically performed for Lake Associations to provide a lake wide assessment of the vegetation within a lake. Of particular focus is the identification of nuiscance invasive plants that can be harmful to the lake water quality and ecosystem. Data and information collected in these surveys are used to mitigate the impact invasive plants have on the lake, as well as education and outreach to help prevent the spread of invasive species. Early detection of invasive plants is key in the management and potential eradication from a water body. View results of recent aquatic plant surveys below:
