Study will evaluate feasibility of restoring two lagoons around Belle Isle, which suffer from sedimentation/shallow water, exotic plants (EWM) and poor water quality. The goal is a plan to improve navigation, water quality, aesthetics and fish and wildlife habitat. Will identify the source of nutrients and sediments, applicable BMP's and lake practices to reduce erosion and sedimentation. Public education will take place in the process of developing a sediment and nutrient management strategy.
