Littoral shelves are man-made shallow shelves that are part of a stormwater retention pond systems. We provide littoral shelf maintenance in Venice, FL and the surrounding areas. These vegetated zones are intentionally planted with native aquatic plants. The littoral shelves are located by the outflow structure of storm water retention ponds. The goal of these planted areas is to remove excess nutrients from the water before leaving the site, either through percolation or the out- flow structure itself. Littoral shelves also provide a habitat for birds, fish, and other animals. Local government agencies monitor these areas and require them to be maintained in compliance with local land development requirements. West Coast Lake and Wetland knows precisely how to manage littoral shelf compliance.
