The City is restoring the shoreline and planting a natural buffer on parkland adjacent to Lake Cornelia. View a map of the project area here.

The project benefits include:

Clean Water. Lake Cornelia is polluted with excess nutrients that fuel algae, including harmful blue-green algae blooms. Vegetated buffers promote clean water by filtering nutrients from water before it enters the lake.

Habitat. Native plants support wildlife, including pollinators. The project includes management of invasive buckthorn.

Sustainability. Native landscapes require less mowing which means savings in labor and equipment costs, fewer carbon emissions, and a more resilient landscape in a changing climate.
