COLUMBIA COUNTY LWCD: Silver Lake Assessment Phase 1

Purpose

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. Deliverables include an aquatic plant survey and water quality evaluation. Results of this study will be shared with the community via meetings, and posted on county and municipal websites.
