The Lake County SWCD requested $5,400 in Coastal Nonpoint funding to implement projects and build District capacity. The District used the funding to assist in implementing Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Nonpoint Pollution Control Program by providing engineering, educational, and technical assistance in Lake County. Specific projects included increased technical assistance to solve erosion problems, participation in natural resource issue-based meetings, assistance in planning and conducting the North Shore Erosion Forum, and having District Supervisors serve on state-wide and regional natural resources planning efforts.

This project was funded in part under the Coastal Zone Management Act, by NOAA’s Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management, in cooperation with Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program.
