Lake Saving Projects
Current & Recent Projects
- Supplemental EIS INFO Page
Since 2000, the LGA has funded and coordinated over 70 lake saving projects to solve pollution and stormwater runoff problems throughout the watershed. Our project map shows where we have worked over the last 10 years.
The LGA collaborates with many project partners, including state and local government, property owners, homeowner associations, citizen groups and individuals. Our project partners not only help us solve the problems, they help us identify potential project locations.
Each project can involve many steps, including: identifying the problem, assessing the findings, securing funding, completing analysis, planning or designing solutions, completing permit applications, and implementing the solution.
The LGA’s Geographic Information System (GIS) provides comprehensive mapping capabilities to support LGA projects, as well as to meet the needs of area agencies and municipalities. In addition, the LGA rents a Catch Vac, a specialized piece of heavy equipment, to municipalities and citizens so they can easily and economically remove debris from stormwater drains and catch basins.
Each year, grants are secured from private foundations and public sources to fund these projects.
