DNR Healthy Lakes Grant awarded to Squash Lake

The Squash Lake Association was awarded the Healthy Lakes Initiative grant by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources in April. The two-year grant is new for the DNR and is intended to provide financial assistance to lake property owners for improving lake habitat through small and medium sized projects.

Projects include water diversion and infiltration techniques to reduce runoff into lakes, rain gardens, native plantings and fish sticks as best practices covered by the grant.  

The grant will pay for 75 percent of the cost up to a maximum reimbursement of $1,000 for each project.  

Multiple projects per landowner are acceptable. Applications must include descriptions of the individual projects, have “shovel-ready” projects and include pledges from property owners promising to complete the project.

The Squash Lake Association submitted four best practices projects for grant consideration in its application. Squash Lake’s grant includes a rock infiltration, a rain garden, a native planting, and a fish sticks project.

Squash Lake was only one of 11 organizations statewide to receive the grant from the DNR in 2015. It is the only organization in Oneida County and the Northwoods Region to be awarded funding.
