2017 LAKE PUCKAWAY MANAGEMENT PLAN

The 2017 Lake Puckaway Management Plan was started in 2015 and was completed and approved September 2017.

It was truly a team-based project and without the input of a group of people could not have been done:

  • Lake Puckaway Protection & Rehibilitation Planning Committee,

  • Lake Puckaway Protection & Rehibilitaiton District,

  • Green Lake County Land Conservation Department,

  • Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources

This project started in spring of 2015 and included continued assessment of the lake's water quality, modeling of watershed inputs, the completion of multipel surveys to document occurences of native and non-native plant specieis within the lake, and a full bathymetric study to develop a new contour map of the lake.
