Starry Stonewort Awareness Week, August 15 – 22- Are You Interested In Learning More?

This event is conducted by the Waukesha County AIS team and provides instructions on how you can test the waters in your backyard for Starry Stonewort. Throughout the week, we will have professionals on hand to verify species, take in samples of suspect SSW, and look at any suspect pictures you may have to see if further investigation is needed. 

The benefits of having this week-long event are:

  • Keeps consistency in documentation and observation
  • Gives us strong data to see trends over multiple years

Contact Samantha Lammers for more information, reporting instructions, and lake testing equipment:

Correction: Nighttime Speed Limit On Lac La Belle Is 10 MPH

It has come to our attention that the back side of the recently distributed Annual Meeting Agenda & Budget Hearing Notice contained an error in the nighttime speed limit for Lac La Belle.  It was incorrectly noted as being “Slow No Wake” from sunset to sunrise.  It should have stated 10 MPH is the speed limit from sunset to sunrise.  Thank you to those that provided correction.  Have a great time on the lake day or night!  Drive safely.
