·        With increased pressures on lake, river, and shoreland resources, statewide management standards that had been in effect for over two decades were no longer adequate to provide resource protection. New management standards have now been adopted by all Minnesota Counties, including Aitkin County on January 21, 1992.

·        Clean Lakes safe drinking water and a healthy economy are tied together and can only be assured for the future if all citizens join together to prevent degradation of ground and surface water.

§         Construction or remodeling buildings
