Fountain Lake Habitat Restoration

Fountain Lake, a vital community asset in Albert Lea, Minnesota faced water quality challenges, leading to its inclusion in the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s Impaired Waters List. The Shell Rock River Watershed District initiated a multi-phase, state-funded improvement plan, including a lake-wide fish habitat strategy co-designed by ISG to enhance water quality and support native fish communities. By employing environmentally friendly design, fostering active community engagement, and collaborating with local, state, and federal agencies, we built upon the SRRWD's efforts to improve the ecological health and water quality of this regional resource.
