The Itasca County Shoreland Guide provides basic information about good lake stewardship. You will learn ways of managing your property that will protect water quality by: (1) curbing pollution at the source and (2) reducing, capturing, and cleansing runoff before pollutants reach the lake. Included in the guide is information on how to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS) that can impair recreational enjoyment and impact water quality. Speciļ¬c local and state rules and regulations related to shoreland living and development will also be covered.
