Monthly Meetings on Thursdays
Each year in April we move the monthly meetings to the fourth Thursday of the month, giving you more time to enjoy the waterway on the weekends. Next month’s meeting will be held on Thursday, 7/24 starting at 7:00pm. Come join us!
We got it!
The Aquatic Plant Management (APM) Committee was just awarded a $57K grant to help pay for managing the Aquatic Invasive Species (a.k.a. weeds) in our waterway this year. You can read all the details of the grant here.
The Results Are In!
Thank you to everyone who responded to the WWMD survey. The Marketing Committee analyzed the results, identifying areas where you think we need to improve and issues that concern you around the waterway. The Board has approved the “WWMD Response to 2014 Riparian Survey” which is posted on the Marketing Committee page.

Did you know we are part of a Scenic Urban Waterway?
The WWMD has discovered a Wisconsin State law that singles out our waterway as one of three in the State. According to this law, the Illinois Fox River (of which the Waterford Waterway is a big part) shall have special treatment to improve it and its watershed. You can read all about it here.
2014 Aquatic Plant Control Permit Application
Please see here for our 2014 permit application. This allows us to treat for both Aquatic Invasive Species as well as navigational needs.
