There are many things you can do as a landowner to help keep our lakes clean. Even if you don’t live directly on the water, the actions that you take on your property can affect water quality. Did you know soil erosion carries phosphorus into waterbodies triggering algae blooms? Some of the most important things you can do as a landowner are:

    • Leave shoreline plants or add more
    • Maintain gravel roads and driveways
    • Use erosion control during construction
    • Pump your septic tank
    • Minimize your lawn
