Wetlands, Shorelines and Streambanks

Wetlands, Shorelines and streambanks are important and intricate parts of aquatic ecosystems.

Managing these areas properly is important to the health of our lakes, rivers and streams. Agricultural, judicial and municipal drainage, transportation infrastructure, recreational development and urban stormwater all have an effect on the amount of runoff to our streams, rivers, wetlands and lakes.
