Dredging Project Details
The WWMD has been actively working over the past year on a dredging project that would specifically address issues with sediment accumulation that has been taking place for many years. The maps below show projected dredging areas. (Click the link below to see ALL maps)
The WWMD looks to remove 1.5 ft from these navigational lanes in addition to riparian owners removing 50 cubic yards near their shorelines and piers over the next three years.
Request for proposals on dredging have been submitted. Mechanical and hydraulic dredging methods will be used in this project.
More information will be provided as it becomes available.
Welcome to the WWMD
Mission: Maintain, protect, and improve the quality of the Waterford Waterway, its fisheries, its watershed, and boundaries; while maintaining the highest possible quality of living experience for its residents.
The district includes Tichigan Lake, Conservancy Bay, Buena Lake, Waterford Lake, and the Fox River.
Small Scale Dredging Project
Learn More About the Project
The objective of this project is to address and improve water depths in areas adjacent to the
channels already identified in the past as requiring dredging, but at a smaller scale that may
be approved and funded at a faster pace than previous dredging efforts with minimal or no
engineering/consulting costs. The project would follow the guidelines of an existing DNR
dredging permit for individual riparian owners allowing up to 50 cubic yards of sediment per
property to be removed each year for the next three years. One permit per year will be filed
for approximately 500 owners, at a cost that the majority of owners will agree to by vote,
which would then be added to tax levies.

“Waterford Police Department Patrol Boat Gets a New Look”
The WWMD board of commissioners approved financial assistance to the Waterford Police Department to make necessary upgrades to their patrol boat. The WWMD's funds were used to wrap the boat in new "clearly" identifiable markings, a new light system, and a PA system. The WWMD is committed to improving safety within the watershed and this was an important step in ensuring increased safety.
