Whether you are a lake manager or a lake resident, an ecologist or an engineer, this popular two-day course is for you. From small ponds to large lakes, drinking water reservoirs to fishing lakes, if you want your lake and watershed management efforts to be successful you need a technically sound foundation. This course will give you the training needed to properly investigate and diagnose lake quality problems and to develop and implement cost-effective, restoration measures.

Recently redesigned and updated, this course will teach you how to evaluate what is needed to properly protect, manage and restore your pond, lake or reservoir. Professionals will guide you through the benefits and pitfalls of all of the most commonly implemented lake and pond management measures. The new, interactive nature of the course will provide attendees with the opportunity to discuss the specific issues and problems impacting the condition of their waterbody. The course also provides for "hands-on" problem solving and the in-class application of the featured course topics.
