WAUSHARA COUNTY: LCO-Waushara County Lakes Study and Plan (Group B Lakes)

Purpose

Phase two of this Lake Planning study will involve up to seventeen Waushara County lakes (Group B): Gilbert Lake, Big Hills Lake, Johns Lake, Kusel Lake, Lake Lucern, Lake Morris, Lake Napowan, Long Lake, Pearl Lake, Pine Lake, Porters Lake, Round Lake, Silver Lake, Spring Lake, Twin Lake, Wilson Lake. The goals are to characterize the existing aquatic plant communities, characterize existing water quality, develop tools for relating lake water quality to land uses, predict sensitivity of water and habitat quality to future changes in land use, identify critical landscape features, provide a practical summary of these results for use by citizens and county staff, and characterize and map levels of shoreline development and determine any relationships between development and wildlife communities.
