Lake Protection Grant
Arrowhead Lake is located in the Town of Rome, Adams County, Wisconsin. The impoundment is 300 surface acres in size. Its maximum depth is 25.2, with an average depth of 8. The dam impounds Fourteen-Mile Creek downstream from the dams at Lower and Upper Camelot Lakes and Sherwood Lake, on its way to the Wisconsin River. The dams on these lakes are owned and operated by Adams County. There is a public boat ramp located on southwest side of the lake owned by The Adams County Parks Department, as well as a public swimming beach. Heavy residential development around the lake is found along most of the lakeshore. The first 100 landward from the water is owned by the Lake Arrowhead Association, which also operates two golf courses, a restaurant, swimming pool and marinas around the lake for use by Lake Arrowhead property owners. The lake is managed by the Tri-Lakes Management District.
Adams County proposes to provide up to 75% of the cost of shoreland restoration practices to lake front property owners on Arrowhead lake. Grant funds will be distributed to fund removal of sea walls, minor bank re-shaping, placement of rip-rap, establishment of vegetative buffers and implementation of individual stormwater management plans.
