Hot off the press! The Cook County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) has been hard at work creating a helpful tool for local lakeshore property owners, the Shoreland Stewardship Resource Guide.
 
It's a full-color, 40-page booklet, filled with advice on ways to manage shoreline property to protect water quality. But the booklet is in no way a dry recitation of rules and regulations. It is filled with useful information on watersheds, the benefits of shoreline buffer zones, and practical tips on reducing runoff and pollution. 
 
Copies are available at the Soil & Water office at the Cook County courthouse and other locations across the county, including at the WTIP Community Radio station. 
 
An electronic version is also available online on the Cook County Soil & Water website
 
WTIP’s Joe Friedrichs spoke with Michaela Clingaman, conservation technician, with the Soil & Water Conservation District, about the resource guide.
