Tetonka-Sakatah Lake Improvement District

ISG was contacted to assess the poor water quality of three lakes in the Waterville Area.  These lakes contain excessive invasive species weed growth, high nutrient loading, and minimal native aquatic species.  To help fund projects improving water quality, the establishment of a Lake Improvement District would provide consistent funding by landowners and political power to help achieve outside funding to supplement lake management projects. Please refer to the document and links below for additional project information.
