Central Sands Lakes Study work plan

In December 2017 the department released the work plan (scope of work) [PDF] to model and evaluate Pleasant, Plainfield and Long Lakes in Waushara County as required by 2017 Wisconsin Act 10. The work plan lays out the road map for conducting the Central Sands Lakes study over the next few years.

Map of the proposed model domain

The proposed model domain shown below includes the initial estimate of the near-field area (the dotted parallelogram) containing the three study lakes and the estimated far-field area as defined by major hydrologic features (dark blue boundary).
