Based upon the information gathered, the Clinton Lake Watershed Resource Planning Committee, Technical Advisory Committee, and project planning staff have identified sedimentation and contaminants as the primary sources of water quality degradation in the Clinton Lake Watershed. Sedimentation and contaminants are threatening the health and recreational value of the lake and its tributaries. The continuing influence of these sources is due to minimal public awareness regarding water quality issues and influences; nonpoint source runoff from agricultural and residential practices, including conventional tillage and application of nutrients; and exposed streambanks and lakeshore throughout the watershed. Incorporated into the objectives are action items that will increase awareness and build partnerships throughout the watershed.
