WAPOA Awards Funding for Five Shoreland Restoration Projects
Property owners who were interested in applying for WAPOA funding to complete a shoreland restoration project attended a project review/application session on June 17th. Each Shoreland Restoration contestant was given thirty minutes to present their project. Experts asked questions of each contestant regarding the project plans, the goals of each project; reviewed sketches and/or professionally provided landscaping plans, discussed the anticipated project costs, and also provided guidance. The experts were Heather Baird, DNR; Darren Mayers, DNR; Jackie Froemming, U of MN; Bonnie Hiniker, Sunshine Gardens; Dave Fischer, WAPOA; and Jim Brandt, WAPOA. The contestants described what they wanted to do to, such as preventing erosion and storm water run-off into the lake by creating rain gardens, vegetation buffer strips at their shoreline, swales or basins on their property to catch and absorb storm water.
The experts then became judges. They reviewed each application for feasibility, environmental need, long term maintenance plans, the budget and timeline necessary to complete the project, and overall effectiveness and then awarded grants to six contestants, as follows:
