LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
The sixth largest fresh water lake in the United States, Lake of the Woods has sustained significant shoreline erosion through a number of high water events, high inflows from the Rainy River, sustained strong NW winds, and erodible soils on the southern shore. This project implements strategies to protect and enhance private shoreline on the lake by addressing long-term shoreline management. This project will accelerate water quality projects and planning efforts using a multifaceted approach including zoning and land use planning, technical assistance, education and increased citizen interaction.
