Performance Areas

The Blue Lakes project measures group involvement in lake stewardship through 8 performance areas.  Each performance area focuses on a specific aspect of lake stewardship that is unique in its contribution to healthier lakes.  In the first year of the Blue Lakes project, your group will create lake stewardship goals that align to each performance area.  The performance areas provide a template and guidelines for your goals, and encourages your group to create unique and meaningful goals tailored to your lake's needs.

Each performance area targets lake stewardship categories that will improve your community,  lake health and economy.  Blue Lakes committees will select stewardship goal(s) for each performance area, and annual self-assessments are completed to ensure your group is advancing in your goals.  The Blue Lakes project values the efforts of lake stewards rather than immediate improvements in lake health, because we believe these efforts are the baseline for healthier lakes.
