THE NATURE CONSERVANCY: The Nature Conservancy - Mukwonago River

Purpose

1) Successfully drawdown two impoundments on the upper Mukwonago river followed by removal of the two dams with negative impact down stream. 2) Permanently mitigate the risk of either dam breaching causing negative impacts down stream. 3) Restore the functional wetland system to the areas of the current impoundments by recreating approximately 15 acres of wetland. 4) Repair several areas around the two impoundments that have been altered by the fisheries operation to return features to historic conditions. All stated products & project deliverable stated in the grant request shall be met. When the grant is complete, the Department will look for every single deliverable, even minor ones, and if they are not adequately addressed, only partial reimbursement (at the department's discretion) will be made to the applicant. A full description of the project scope and deliverables is available in the grant application, which is part of this agreement. The DNR will be provided with two paper copies and an electronic copy of the final report which entails all the items in the project description.
