Littoral Zones, Wetlands and Preserves
With ever increasing development and urban sprawl, the need to protect our waterways, wetlands and upland preserves is becoming increasingly important. Wetland areas can vary greatly in appearance and function, but all play a key role in preserving the environment and acting as filters of surface water. Littoral shelves are a type of wetland that are contained within a lake, and are created to improve the water quality and health of the lake. Larger stand alone wetlands and uplands also preserve land for conservation and wildlife utilization.
Littoral Shelves. Littoral plants are an effective tool to reduce nutrient loads and contaminants flushed into our lakes and rivers through runoff or other non-point source pollution. They also provide habitat for fish and fowl that inhabit the lakes and other waterways.
