Installation and construction of shoreline protection practices to stabalize that portion of the Wolf River Marsh Complex along the Wolf River delta at Lake Poygan, protecting the wetland, reducing sediment & phosphorus loading to the watershed, and improving the aquatic habitat.


Impede erosion and revegetate a major portion of the Norwegian Bay marsh/wetland in order to reduce effluent turbidity, TSS and phosporus entering Lake Winnebago.
