Reports and Documents
In 2015, Pelican Lake in Oneida County was once again able to continue a protection strategy dating back to 2005. The monitoring of Pelican Lake boat landings has been a successful and ongoing program using the Clean Boats/Clean Waters format as the model. Thanks to the support of the state of Wisconsin and the cooperation of the two townships of Schoepke and Enterprise, the Pelican Lake Property Owners (PLPOA) have worked to protect the lake and educate boaters to the threat of invasive species for a decade.
