Large Scale Lake Planning
Lakes Planning Report. For land use recommendation purposes, this studay looks at the 1,645-acre Little Green Lake Watershed. A Wastewater Facilities Plan has been developed parallel to this analysis. This area land use plan will be incorporated into the larger Town of Green Lake Comprehensive Plan.
The Little Green Lake Protection & Rehabilitation District proposes to develop a watershed land use plan with a stormwater analysis component for Little Green Lake along with a facilities plan that addresses the possible extension of sewer service from the City of Markesan. The land use project activities include the following: 1) establish goals for land use and development; 2) inventory and analyze Watershed physical characteristics and natural resources; 3) determine trends and projections in population & land use; 4) review current land use regulations; 5) recommend future land use patterns; 6) recommend Watershed land use & water quality strategies; and 7) work with District Board to create an action plan for implementation. To support the planning activities described above, collect and/or create the data and GIS mapping needed to 1) identify land parcels within the watershed; 2) evaluate land use impacts; 3) determine soil suitability for basements and septic systems; 4) develop a digital elevation model that will be used with USGS information to analyze drainage patters; and 5) analyze environmentally sensitive areas. The facilities plan project activities include the following: 1) background information, 2) land use/population projections; 3) alternative sewer extension scenarios; 4) recommendations, and 5) maps. A comprehensive watershed land use plan and a facilities plan with be the final products of this project. The DNR will be provided with paper copies and electronic copies of the final report. The project results will be disseminated to the public by public meeting(s) and newsletter mailings with copies of the project report available at Caesticker Public Library, Green Lake/markesan Public Library and Markesan City Hall.
