Littoral shelves are man-made shallow shelves that are planted with native aquatic plants by the outflow structure of storm water retention ponds. This is to remove excess nutrients from the water before leaving the site, either through percolation or the out- flow structure itself. 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 keep these areas in compliance, and provides many lake restoration services such as wetland and preserve maintenance, fish stocking, and experienced littoral shelf maintenance solutions in Venice, FL.
