The Watchic Lake Association knew that expert advice was required to better understand risks to the lake, and explain the risks to stakeholders in a clear and objective fashion. After much research, FB Environmental was hired to conduct a comprehensive survey (some done during adverse weather conditions) to understand risks to the lake.
The WLA and FB Environmental prioritized 52 recommended remediation items based on impact and cost. During 2017 we began work on 19 using WLA funds and volunteers. Collaboration starting with property owners to address top 6 risk runoff risk sites.
