The City is looking to develop a community-driven lake restoration approach that includes an analysis of the watershed, modeling of external and internal nutrient loading, the development of a lake response model, and facilitation of community-based planning.
The purpose of this study is to:
- Identify the conditions that are causing poor water quality in the lake
- Develop goals for the use of the lake
- Develop a roadmap for the restoration of the lake that balances attainable conditions with the desired recreational uses of the lake.
Thank you for protecting Silver Lake by stabilizing your shoreline. We are happy to be able to assist some landowners with grant dollars from the Water Quality Commission.
The amount we will be able to fund at this time is up to ten percent (10%) of the cost of a project with a maximum of $5000.00. If you receive an award, you will be required to sign a 10-year maintenance agreement on your shoreline project (that will stay with the property if you sell). Any awards over $600 will receive a 1099 for that year.
This letter is to explain some of the items we will be expecting in your application.
- The application and award will be for landowners only.
- Best Management Practices shall be used.
- Landowners shall consult with John Wills, Water Quality Commission coordinator (712.336.3782 Ext 3) and/or Mike Hawkins with Iowa Department of Natural Resources (712.330.1849), on their project.
- Applications will be accepted up to and including August 1, 2022
- Please return applications to:

Again, thank you for protecting Silver Lake
