Otter Lake is a water supply and recreational reservoir. Erosion along the 30 miles of shoreline is a major source of nutrient and sediment loads. Northwater characterized and mapped the entire lake shore using advanced mapping technology, and quantified erosion and nutrient inputs to the lake. The mapping is being used to prioritize and design remediation projects.
