Lakefront Property Certification Program

The Friends of Nolin Lake, Corps of Engineers, and other partners have seen the need for several years to combat non-point source pollution at Nolin River Lake.  

Undertaking programs and projects to combat pollution will help keep our water clean, promote community involvement, and show the surrounding communities that we are dedicated to making Nolin better.  

In the past years, a Lakefront Property Certification Program was envisioned.  Two grants were applied for to get this program off the ground.  We are optimistic that the program will receive funding in 2014.  Below you will find a summary of the program as currently proposed.  In the meantime if you are interested in instituting any of these best management practices, please contact us at info@friendsofnolinlake.org or call NRL Corps of Engineers office 270-286-4511.  

The above picture is an example of badly eroded shoreline and it shows Ranger, Danielle Treadway and volunteer, Carl Suk planting vegetative buffers to reduce sediment and nutrient runoff.

Below is a PDF document you can open and read more about the lakefront property certification program we are pursuing for Nolin River Lake.

If you would like to help the Friends of Nolin Lake in our mission to keep our lake safe, clean, and enjoyable please do so by becoming a member for only $25 a year per family.  Your donation to our membership program helps with funding environmental programs such as the lakefront property certification program, lake activities such as two sets of fireworks, and multi-purpose trails such as the Southwest Kentucky Mountain Bike Association project at Brier Creek (Nolin Lake State Park).
