As you may be aware, Starry Stonewort, a macroalga invasive species, has been found in area lakes. The OLMD is asking for your help in keeping it out of Okauchee Lake. There are several things you can do to keep it out of Okauchee Lake waterways.
1) Please look for this invasive species in the lake. It can often be found near boat launch sites.
2) Please thoroughly inspect and clean your boat, watercrafts and trailer if you have been in Little Muskego Lake, Big Muskego Lake and Long Lake in Racine County recently.
3) Learn about Starry Stonewort. Public education and prevention is critical to keeping this plant out of Okauchee Lake!
Please visit the following link to the DNR website for identification information: http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/invasives/fact/starrystonewort.html
Identification information on Starry Stonewort can also be found on the “Reports” page of this website. Contact the DNR or the OLMD if you believe you have spotted Starry Stonewort.
Did you hear? Waukesha County AIS is hosting its third Snapshot Day event on August 5! They are looking for volunteers to join them at sites around the county to get a “snapshot” of the aquatic life in our rivers and streams. Snapshot Day includes partnerships with UW Extension’s Citizen Lake Monitoring Network, Wisconsin DNR, and River Alliance of Wisconsin, and 22 other organizations statewide. Come out and learn more about what lives in your local stream, and help the AIS team monitor invasive species. A training session will be held on that day at the Oconomowoc Community Center to kick-off the event! Please view the newsletter for further information! Each newsletter is available to you by visiting the Waukesha County AIS webpage at www.waukeshacounty.gov/AIS.
In recent weeks, Okauchee Lake residents have reported items being removed from their shoreline, boat lifts and boats without permission. Consider taking items of value off your boat, lift and shoreline to prevent thefts from happening. Please be aware and if you see something, say something! Call “911” or the Town Police if you see theft occurring in your area.
Please review the Barging Policy on the “Reports” page of this website to ensure your lake weeds can be collected. Plants must be free of any trash, such as dead fish, cans, tree limbs, sticks, leaves, etc., because the farmers who receive the material will not accept anything but plants. Also, the cutting crew is working hard to address the “hot spots” of the lake first and then will continue cutting the normal rotation of the lake.
