WELCOME TO THE OKAUCHEE LAKE MANAGEMENT DISTRICT HOME PAGE
Are you interested in learning more about water quality issues such as aquatic invasive species, healthy lake initiatives and what you can do to protect or enhance existing water quality? If your answer is “yes!”, please consider attending the 2nd Annual Healthy Lakes Conference at the Oconomowoc Community Center on Friday, June 23, 2017 beginning at 9:00 A.M. Registration begins at 8:30 A.M. Cost is $15 in advance through the Clean Water Association website and $20 at the workshop. A detailed agenda of activities can be found on the “Reports” page of this website.
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.
Waukesha County AIS Staff recently grew to include several interns for the summer as a result of a grant. Tools and signage are available to you at several County boat launches as part of the Clean Boats Clean Water program. Please look for the signage and feel free to use the tools! Also, Clean Boats, Clean Waters boat inspections have begun at various launch sites throughout the County as well. Check it out!
Each newsletter is available to you by visiting the Waukesha County AIS webpage at www.waukeshacounty.gov/AIS.

The correct date of the “Additional Fireworks Fun in Whittaker Bay” should be shown as SUNDAY, JULY 2. The date of the “Additional Fireworks Fun” shown on the bottom of Page 5 in the 2017 OLMD newsletter distributed in the mail to residents was incorrect. The date of Okauchee Lake Independence Day Celebration Fireworks & Venetian Night Lighted Boat Parade HAS NOT changed and will still take place on Monday, July 3. Thank you!
