Grassed waterways, diversions, and spillways are examples of best management practices (BMPs) used in Big Green Lake’s watershed to help protect water quality. With the Green Lake County’s Land Conservation Department’s technical expertise and cost sharing funds from the Green Lake Sanitary District, lake partners are working together to implement these BMPs to limit the amount of sediment and nutrients (phosphorus) entering Big Green Lake. In 2011 we began mapping these BMPs as a tool for watershed education.
