LakeLine Magazine is the official publication for the North American Lake Management Society (NALMS), a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote the understanding, protection and restoration of lakes, ponds, reservoirs and their watersheds. It is published quarterly as a medium for exchange and communication among all those interested in lake management.

Through LakeLine Magazine, NALMS brings its goals of grassroots public education, public policy, advocacy and scientific communication to a national readership comprised of all current NALMS members and government agencies such as the US Environmental Protection Agency. Each issue contains news, views and interesting information on lakes and reservoirs, and their watersheds and tributaries, from around your neighborhood and around the world.

Starting with the spring 2019 issue, LakeLine Magazine will be switching to an all electronic format.
