Healthy Lakes

THE HEALTHY LAKES PROGRAM IS A WAY FOR PROPERTY OWNERS ON THE LAKE TO DISCOURAGE GEESE AND PROTECT THEIR SHORELINE FROM RUNOFF AND EROSION WHILE IMPROVING WATER QUALITY AND SHORELINE HABITAT WITH STATE GRANT ASSISTANCE UP TO A MAXIMUM OF $1,000 PER BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICE.

INDIVIDUAL HOMEOWNERS ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR STATE GRANTS SO THEY MUST PARTNER WITH A GRANT ELIGIBLE ENTITY LIKE DELAVAN LAKE SANITARY DISTRICT (DLSD).  A HEALTHY LAKES GRANT WAS SPONSORED BY DLSD IN 2016 AND A NEW HEALTHY LAKES GRANT APPLICATION WAS SUBMITTED FEBRUARY 1, 2019.  IF THAT GRANT IS APPROVED, IT WILL MEAN THAT 15 HEALTHY LAKES PROJECTS WILL BE INSTALLED IN 2019 AND 2020.

IF ALL GOES AS PLANNED DLSD HOPES TO SPONSOR ANOTHER HEALTHY LAKES GRANT FOR 2021.  FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE HEALTHY LAKES GRANT PROGRAM AND THE EXCITING BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES INCLUDED IN THE PROGRAM PLEASE GO TO https://healthylakeswi.com
