Large Scale Lake Planning
Columbia County LWCD, with participation by City of Portage and UW-Extension, Stevens Point will conduct a comprehensive data collection and planning effort to improve Silver Lake. Two grants work together for this goal. This grant will survey the aquatic plants and water quality of both basins, and characterize the watershed. They will conduct a shoreland inventory, and a groundwater investigation will be performed. All these results will be used to understand the watershed and lake in Phase 2.
