Cook County Shoreline Erosion Reduction Projects
Septic Inventory around 4 Lakes
This project resulted in an estimated annual reduction of 47.12 lbs of phosphorus and 42.72 tons of sediment.
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
This project will enable community partners to implement 5-10 shoreline erosion reduction best management projects that will reduce sediment and improve water quality of county lakes and streams. Preference will be given to properties within a watershed of a Total Maximum Daily Load study, properties on a sentinel lake, properties on lakes and streams with active associations, and projects ranking high in sediment reduction amount. Projects may include engineered erosion reduction Best Management Practices and/or plantings.
