LAKEFRONT ASSOCIATIONS AND CITY/PUBLIC BEACHES WANTING TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF THEIR LAKE: HOW WATERFRONT RESTORATION LLC CAN HELP
Waterfront Restoration realizes that when it comes to lake wide aquatic weed infestations, no one method can control, reduce, or remove all lake weeds. Multiple management efforts provide the greatest form of large scale management and are the key to helping future generations understand the importance of proper lake management.
Waterfront Restoration LLC has worked with the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board as well as multiple groups of Lake Associations, Municipality boards and HOA’s around Lake Minnetonka and the Greater Twin Cities area to develop and implement successful management outcomes that meet their financial goals and lake management plans.
As featured on KARE 11, KSTP, the Star Tribune and WCCO, we have developed positive relationships with hundreds of residents throughout the greater MN region by providing superior SCUBA by the root weed removal services. Every partnership involves the outreach and involvement to educate residents about solutions and benefits to improve the quality of their lake while also identifying and protecting native plants.
Not sure where to start? We can help by:
- Discussing and answering questions about our services and how they benefit your lake.
