Shoreline restoration practices have changed dramatically over the past decade. Current regulations regarding shoreline restoration may require a permit from Wisconsin DNR for work completed from the Ordinary High Water Mark (OHWM) out towards the water, and a Polk County Zoning Land Use permit for areas from OHWM towards the land. It is extremely important to have the proper permits in place before any alterations to the land begin. Our staff is trained and certified for shoreline restoration/buffer installs within Polk County Wisconsin. We work closely with both of these agencies to protect your rights as a riparian landowner, while providing erosion control and reduced storm water run-off to protect our natural resources. Rip-Rap rock shorelines combined with native vegetation above the OHWM create a fantastic low maintenance filter in which wildlife will thrive. Cost sharing grants may be available for native/buffer plantings, however, Rip-Rap is generally not cost shared.
We provide service to Polk and surrounding counties.
