Sustainable Lakes Project: A Lake Management Model for the Future.

West, Paula and George Orning.

The Sustainable Lakes Project was intended to help local lake associations develop comprehensive lake management plans for five pilot lakes in Minnesota, and use these experiences to create a sustainable lake management planning tool for use by other lake associations and communities. The project ended in June 1999 with the completion of the five pilot lake plans and publication of the Sustainable Lakes Planning Workbook: A Lake Management Model. This article offers an overview of the project, including a summary of the four primary phases of the sustainable lakes approach to developing a comprehensive lake management plan. The authors conclude by highlighting selected results and outcomes of the five pilot projects, identifying critical needs for successful lake management throughout Minnesota, and offering some general observations about the Sustainable Lakes Project itself.
