Lake Wisconsin Alliance to talk about Algae June 14

 

June 7, 2018



Ever wonder where the blue green algae comes from that effects Lake Wisconsin most summers? Would you like to know what YOU could do to help prevent the algae blooms? Your questions will be answered on June 14 at 6:00 PM at the Lodi Town Hall located at W10919 County Road V Lodi, WI 53555.

The Lake Wisconsin Alliance (LWA) invites you to participate in this very important discussion, as it is your future that will be affected if we do not do all we can to reduce phosphorus loading throughout the Wisconsin River basin.

Matthew Diebel, PhD, and Kevin Kirsch PE from the Wisconsin DNR will be presenting some of the results from the DNR’s extensive study looking at phosphorus loads up and down the Wisconsin River, from the headwaters to Lake Wisconsin. It is, for the most part, the phosphorus loads that cause the algae blooms we experience.

The Lake Wisconsin Alliance (LWA) is a 501)3 not for profit organization that endeavors to balance the diverse interests of the Lake Wisconsin community while improving water quality, recreational opportunities, and sustaining a healthy ecosystem within the Lake Wisconsin watershed.
