State > Wisconsin



Wisconsin is surrounded by great North American water resources on its borders:  Lake Superior to its north, Lake Michigan to its east and the Mississippi and the St. Croix rivers to its west.

The state contains 1,000 miles of Lake Superior and Lake Michigan shoreline, and more than 20% of the state’s land area resides in the Great Lakes basin. Within the state itself, Wisconsin is favored with 15,000 lakes inland lakes and scores of wetlands, most of which are connected to rivers and lakes and under state or federal regulatory jurisdiction.

The state’s waterways play an important role in supporting and facilitating the state’s economy in manufacturing, agriculture, tourism and outdoor recreation.

First introduced in the state in 2018, our ecological solutions facilitate commercial and industrial development and help industrial, agricultural and municipal sources reduce nutrient- and phosphorus-loading into the region’s waterways. We use nature-based solutions including advanced stormwater BMPs and banking solutions to address wetland, riparian, and species mitigation as well as nutrient reduction.
