Small Scale Lake Planning
Lake Management Plan Development
Information and Education
In the last few years, Lake Winnebago has experienced greatly improved water clarity which has resulted in a large increase in aquatic plant density. As a result, lake stakeholders are upset and educational outreach is necesary to help people understand why lake conditions are changing. Fond du Lac County is currently engaged in identifying potential stakeholder groups in preparation for developing a lake management plan. They have also hired a lake coordinator who is developing educational materials and media sites to share information and bring stakeholders together. Specific deliverable project outcomes are as follows: 1. Creation of a data base for use by stakeholders, 2. Creation of a media site to distribute informaiton, 3. Creation of a Lake Winnebago group comprised of a core group of stakeholders pulled from DNR, ACOE, boaters and other users of the lake, 4. Develop and provide publications and educational resoures to stakeholders and the public.
