Reports and Documents
Long Lake is a 109-acre lake located within U.S. Public Land Survey Township 4 North, Range 20 East, Sections 5, 6, and 7, Town of Norway, in Racine County, Wisconsin. The Lake is a valuable natural resource offering a variety of recreational and related opportunities to the resident community and its visitors. In the summer of 2015, the recreational and aesthetic values of Long Lake were threatened by the discovery of Starry Stonewort (Nitellopsis obtusa) southeast of the boat launch by the WDNR. The Long Lake Protection District (LLPD) took immediate steps to assess its extent by applying for back to back Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Rapid Response Grants and contracting with Lake and Pond Solutions Co. This plan is prepared at the request of the LLPD and the WDNR to assist lake managers and regulatory agencies in directing future plant management activities.
