Healthy Shorelines for Healthy Lakes

Boat Houses

Like docks, boathouses should be constructed to minimize disturbance to the lake bed, water flows and light penetration. Boathouses often contain a variety of marine-related chemicals such as gas and oil, which can get into the water if flooding occurs. Chemicals should be stored in a separate structure located well above the high water mark or, if in the boathouse, stored on shelves that are not susceptible to flooding.
