Reports and Documents
Letter of approval of the 2019-2024 Vincent Lake Aquatic Plant Management Plan.
Since 2012, landowners on the lake have increasingly voiced concerns over the spread and cover of aquatic plants. In September 2017, landowners officially formed the Vincent Lake Association to collaboratively approach aquatic plant management (with review by Wisconsin DNR) and continue other maintenance activities. In 2018 the Association implemented a trial harvesting plan with the goal of restoring navigational channels in the second lake. Assistance with access lanes (30 feet per 100 feet of shoreline) was offered to landowners who contributed to the weed harvesting plan fund.
