The Lake Protection Workbook includes a series of questions that will help you assess how well you are protecting your property and your lakefront through everyday actions. It also provides practical information, recommendations, and space for recording improvements to assist you in your lake protection efforts.
The Lake Protection workbook is divided into four parts to help guide you through this process:
- Background Property Information
- Lake Protection Self-Assessment
- Record of Achievements & Planned Improvements
- List of References & Source Information
Your self-assessment can help you identify practical ways to protect your lake by making planned improvements to your shoreline.
This workbook is not a replacement for technical evaluation or in-person assessment by a professional. It is an educational tool drawing attention to important aspects of lake protection.
