Healthy Lakes Funds Available

Post Date:05/14/2018 12:00 PM
Funding for lakeshore conservation projects is still available for 2018.
Limited cost-share funds from a WDNR Healthy Lakes grant are still available for eligible landowners willing to install conservation best management practices on their lakeshore property in Portage County.

The grant can reimburse to the landowner 75% “cost share” (up to $1000 max.) for eligible 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. Technical assistance for site evaluation and practice selection is available free of charge.

Lakeshore owners interested in this limited offer should contact Randy Slagg, Portage County Land and Water Conservation Division, at 715/346-1334. Sign-up will remain open until enrollment quota is filled.
