Healthy Lakes grant program
Funding for lake shore conservation projects is still available for 2017.
Limited cost-share funds from a WDNR Healthy Lakes grant are still available for qualified landowners willing to install conservation best management practices on their lake shore property in Portage County.
The grant can reimburse to the landowner 75% “cost share” (up to $1000 max.) for the labor and materials used in the project, for the installation of select practices such as Native Planting buffers, storm water infiltration structures, Rain gardens, and surface diversions for stormwater. See the brochure or Healthy lakes page for more details.
Lake shore owners interested in this limited offer should contact Randy Slagg, Portage County LWCD, by email or telephone (715) 346-1334, before the March 15 sign-up deadline
