WELCOME TO THE OKAUCHEE LAKE MANAGEMENT DISTRICT HOME PAGE

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.
Waukesha County Aquatic Invasive Species staff worked on several projects in the area in the past month. Their efforts included educating youth about purple loosestrife and area residents about Clean Boats Clean Waters boat inspections. In addition they participated in a Clean Water Festival and engaged in a partnership on Little Muskego Lake to remove Starry Stonewort from that lake! Please note lake surveys are underway. Please view the newsletter to see which lakes in the area are being surveyed! Each newsletter is available to you by visiting the Waukesha County AIS webpage at www.waukeshacounty.gov/AIS.
Recently a postcard was sent to riparian owners as notification of 2017 chemical weed treatment for Okauchee Lake. The 2017 chemical treatment application, maps and permit can be found on the “Reports” page of this website.
