This report was funded by the IDNR through a grant from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. It summarizes exotic plant management efforts on Lake Wawasee and Syracuse Lake. These lakes are located in Kosciusko County, Indiana near the town of Syracuse.
The 2017 WACF Earth Day Festival was a huge success and everyone had a great time!
The WACF recently completed a transaction for a key piece of shoreline property on Gordy Lake. This lake is part of the 10-lakes/Turkey Creek chain that supplies an estimated 43% of the water to Lake Wawasee. Controlling and protecting these shorelines insures that the water flowing into Lake Wawasee remains clear and clean.
This Fall the WACF decided to move forward on a much needed new drainage system for the WACF Thorpe Sediment Basin project near the middle school. The basin filters sediment that would otherwise drain into Lake Wawasee. The new system will allow much better drainage when a significant rain event occurs. View complete info on the new design…
