Managing Lakes and Reservoirs
North American Lake Management Society and Terrene Institute
In cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

For scientists, engineers, and informed citizens committed to protecting and managing our lakes

Understandable and useful, Managing Lakes and Reservoirs addresses the enormous amount of information on lake management that has developed in the decade since the publication of the manual's first two editions (Lake and Reservoir Restoration Guidance Manual, 1988 and 1990). The first two manuals dealt primarily with restoration of lakes, but this third edition moves beyond restoration issues to focus on ongoing management of lakes and processes that communities of citizens, policymakers, scientists, and enforcement agencies can use to achieve desired outcomes for their local lakes.

The North American Lake Management Society (NALMS) is committed to forging partnerships among citizens, scientists, and professionals to foster the management and protection of lakes and reservoirs for today and tomorrow.
