Fountain Lake In-Lake Habitat

 

The Shell Rock River Watershed District is partnering with the city of Albert Lea and contracting with J.F. Brennan Company and Shoreline Landscaping & Construction to install habitat features in Fountain Lake. These features, including rock reefs, boulder clusters, and a toe wood streambank stabilization, will complement the recently dredged Main Bay. Goals of the project include improving fisheries habitat by providing shelter, food sources, spawning grounds, forage locations, and enhancing biodiversity.                                                                                                                                             

                                                                                               

 

Please be aware of Brookside Boat Landing closures as equipment is mobilized to the Main Bay. Dock owners will also be notified via email of the impending work.

Funding for this project is made possible by the Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Council.
