Lakeshore Stabilization


Lakeshore Stabilization Photo

 

The interface of water and land is a delicate environment that provides valuable habitat for numerous organisms such as macroinvertebrates, amphibians, and fish, all of which play an important role in a healthy lake ecosystem.  When the water/soil interface is compromised by shore erosion, the entire lake ecosystem is negatively affected including both the aesthetic and recreational benefits of the community resource.  An emphasis on biotechnical solutions utilizing appropriately chosen native vegetation provides structural integrity to the shoreline as well as wildlife, water quality, and aesthetic benefits. Vegetated shorelines provide improved water quality by filtering lawn runoff and contributing to nutrient uptake, thus reducing sources of undesirable vegetative and algal growth, which can further contribute to lake decline.
