As owners of 100 feet of frontage on Mougey Lake, we know how important it is to make sure that we treat all bodies of water with respect.   Just one pound of phosphorus fertilizer running off into the lake can produce 500 pounds of algae.  Since many of us also own shore frontage on Mougey Lake, Ingalls Bay or Omena Bay, what we plant at home and how we treat the area near the water is critical to the ongoing environmental health of our community.   If you're interested in improving the environment at your home then you'll love this Michigan State University Extension publication  Landscaping for Water Quality, which you can download for reference and ideas for waterfront plantings and landscaping.
