The Coalition of Haliburton County Property Owners Association shoreline restoration project is reporting a successful start. At the recent county council meeting, Chair Paul MacInnes told councilors they did studies on 11 lakes last year. MacInnes says reports for each lot assessed will be given to the property owner in April showing how they can restore their shoreline. He says the project still has a long way to go, but it’s helped raised awareness about the importance shorelines have on lake health and water quality. MacInnes says this year they plan to assess two thousand lots on six lakes, and roll out the economic benefit of the project to get local businesses involved.
