County assistance needed for lake management plans
To improve efficiencies and to have greater impact, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is looking more and more for grant projects to be a part of plan for the management of a lake.
The Waushara County Watershed Lakes Council asked the county if there is a possibility of reducing the cost of producing lake management plans. The county was able to go further and develop lake management plans at almost no cost to lake districts or associations beyond attendance at planning meetings and some distribution of information about the lake management plans.
The initial phases were to gather information about the conditions of the lakes. The results can be found on the Waushara County website under the zoning and land conservation, www.co.waushara.wi.us.
