LAKE PEWAUKEE SANITARY DISTRICT: ACQ-Lake Pewaukee SD Property Acquisition

The Pewaukee Lake Sanitary District (PLSD) will use this grant to pay for part of the purchase of the Ogden property, located in the Town of Pewaukee. The parcel is 56 acres, including 50 acres of wetland and 6 acres of upland. The site is about a mile upstream of Pewaukee Lake. It contains a spring fed pond and has a class "A" trout stream, Coldwater Creek running along its southern border. Coldwater Creek flows about a half mile to Coco Creek, which then flow a half mile to Pewaukee Lake. The parcel borders other PLSD lands under protection.

The PLSD will manage an invasive species, buckthorn through yearly removal or cutting, with the goal to remove a minimum of \00BC acre per year. A prairie on the parcel will be maintained by periodic controlled burns at least once every 3 years. The parcel will be used as an educational classroom by the local school district, the Pewaukee River Partnership and the Pewaukee Women's Club. A new wetland delineation will be completed within the first year of ownership. The District will install an asphalt or concrete pad in the upland "buildable area" on the northeast corner of the property to provide for recycling/composting of aquatic plants harvested from Lake Pewaukee. Permanent posts will be placed every 100 feet along the wetland on the edge of the "buildable area" by the composting site.

A barn will be removed within the first year and a house will be removed within 2 years of PLSD ownership. A small existing garage will remain on site for storage of machinery and tools.
