A public meeting has been scheduled to provide Southeastern Wisconsin residents with information about the Rock Lake Watershed Protection Plan Project that is being developed by the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (SEWRPC) with the support of the Town of Salem and the Rock Lake Restoration Association.
At the public meeting, attendees will learn more about the proposed lake management plan and be able to provide comments on the plan outline and content. The meeting will be held Tuesday, Aug. 26, at Salem Town Hall, 9814 Antioch Road, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
The meeting has two main goals
- To provide a review of the proposed plan outline and content.
- To identify important issues and concerns related to Rock Lake. There will be an opportunity for property owners, residents, and people who use Rock Lake to complete provide feedback and submit comments about lake management issues and concerns.
“The purpose of the plan development is to use current science and technology to develop effective management recommendations that will ensure the enjoyment of Rock Lake on a long term basis,” said SEWRPC Senior Specialist Beverly Saunders, who is developing the plan for SEWRPC. “The plan will address aquatic plant management, fish and wildlife populations, and shoreline maintenance issues, as well as provide recommendations that could be implemented in the greater watershed to address lake management issues at their source.”
