Reports and Documents
Cedar Corporation, a Menomonie, WI, based engineering/environmental consulting firm, was hired by the Spooner Lake District in 2000 to assist in promoting water quality in the area. Cedar chose a holistic watershed approach as opposed to a simple lake/flowage approach to assess current and future conditions. This report documents the various information gained through multiple studies and assessments as well as continuing previous work. The intent is to provide a dynamic document that can be altered in the future as more information becomes available. Recommendations to implement water quality protection and improvement projects are presented in Chapter 9.
