Shoreline Stabilization Project 2013-2014 – Al and Carmen Rinta
After receiving a Cost Share Grant from the BSALWAMP / SWCD we were able to stabilize our shoreline on Round Lake with riprap and native plantings. In the spring, we will be adding additional vegetation with native plantings to help with runoff. 
Shoreline Restoration Project 2013-2014  Patrick and Beverly Rath 
Years of wave action and winter ice movement had eroded our  shoreline.  After research and discussion with Janet Smude (Aitkin County SWCD), we chose a solution which used coconut coir logs and a variety of native plants to produce a buffer.  This option fit well with our existing natural shoreline.
