Dredging History Lessons
Please check our first Dredging History Lesson to get caught up on everything that has gone into our Dredging Project. More lessons to come soon!
The Barge is up for Adoption
WWMD is getting rid of the old barge we used to collect samples of the bottom and to determine the sediment depth for the dredging project. We are offering it to riparian owners of the district and would like to get $200 (OBO) for it, which will help us fund projects next year. Of course, donations above that will graciously be accepted. It’s AS IS, WHERE IS, there is no motor or registration. The left tube has water in it due to a small leak.
If you are interested, contact Dick Kosut, 262-895-6060.

Waukesha Water Diversion
The Conference of Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Governors and Premiers has unanimously approved Waukesha’s request to divert up to 8,200,000 gallons of Lake Michigan water per day. This is water that will not be put into the Fox River, which could be up to 1/3 of the daily flow during times of low flow in summer.
