Land and Water Resource Management Plan

This plan, written in 1999 and revised in 2005 and 2010 is a response to a legislative call to redesign Wisconsin’s programs to reduce pollution from unknown sources. It is intended to guide and direct the Land Conservation Department by identifying long term goals and implementation strategies to reduce sediment and phosphorous in rivers, streams, and lakes in Waushara County.

Some of the other goals include bringing all lands to within tolerable soil loss; providing sufficient areas of shoreline plants between the water and buildings along the edge of all lakes, rivers, and streams; and provide technical assistance to landowners.

Money is available annually to share the cost of implementing practices that accomplish these goals and objectives.
