Whether you own property along the lakeshore, or live further upland, there are many things you can do to ensure that potential pollutants from your home don’t reach Coeur d’Alene Lake or its tributaries.

Our Lake*A*Syst manual is an excellent tool to help you assess what’s happening in your property, so that you can help be a part of stewarding “Our Gem.” Click on the links below to download the individual chapters, or download the entire manual here. Each chapter has a resource guide for local technical assistance, as well as a risk assessment worksheet to help you determine where you might need help. If you would like a visit from our Lake Management staff to help you conduct a property assessment, please contact us!
