The Inspection and Protection Division identifies and routinely monitors areas of concern that may lead to violations of the Watershed Rules and Regulations, such as: residential drainage issues, construction projects, residential septic issues, nutrient application (ag/non-ag), and streambank erosion.


Shoreline Surveys

When lake levels are low, typically during the late fall and early spring, Inspection and Protection Division staff  will walk sections of the shoreline to assess conditions and note issues that could impact water quality ("areas of concern"). 

Tile Drain Outlets

If subsurface tile drain outlets are displaying abnormal characteristics or odorous discharges, the Inspection and Protection Division will conduct sampling on the water flowing from them to determine the issue(s).
