Shoreland restoration projects will be designed and installed in accordance with the NRCS Best Managment Practices Definitions and Conditions. The Department of Natural Resources will be provided with both a paper copy and an electronic copy of all project products and periodic reports on the progress of the project. The project results will be disseminated to the public by newsletter(s), or public meeting(s), and/or newspaper articles(s).
