WATER QUALITY Action List
 
Preserve and Improve Water Quality Action List
 
The action list below includes actions focused on reducing nutrients that support excessive weed growth, septic system effectiveness, erosion prevention, and fish/wildlife habitat protection. Please continue to use this Action List as an aid to responsible lakeshore use.
 
FOLLOW  regulations and recommendations regarding the installation, use, routine inspection, and maintenance of septic systems.
PRESERVE   bulrushes (lake reeds) that filter nutrients from the lake.
REFRAIN   from shoreline burning and other practices that allow nutrients such as ashes, clippings, and leaves to enter the lake.
ESTABLISH   and preserve a natural vegetation buffer near the shoreline to prevent erosion and filter nutrients.
MINIMIZE   clearing of trees and natural vegetation, especially on shoreline banks in order to prevent erosion and filter nutrients.
LIMIT   the size of impervious surfaces (patios, paved driveways, etc.) which offer no nutrient filtering and accelerate water runoff causing erosion.
FOLLOW   the Minnesota exotic species (Eurasian Milfoil, Zebra Mussels, etc.) regulations and recommendations.
LIMIT   use of fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides. If you must use them, do so in a responsible manner, and properly dispose of toxic chemicals.
