USEPA Survey of Reservoir Greenhouse gas Emissions

 

The US Environmental Protection Agency is studying greenhouse

gas emissions from reservoirs.  The study will sample 108

reservoirs over three years (2021 is year two). They will be on

Lake Redstone June 1 & 2.  On Tuesday they will deploy sampling

traps with anchors and buoys at around 15 locations.  They will

return on Wednesday to remove the sampling devices.  Please

avoid the orange buoys that will be placed in the lake for the

study.   For more information please see SuRGE.

Meronek Meadows Repair

 
The Lake Redstone Protection District is pleased to announce the completion of the Meronek Meadows repair.  A single dirt berm was washed out and was replaced with 3 rows of gabion baskets filled with stones.  These baskets will allow water from heavy rain/flood events to filter through, trapping sediment away from the lake.  The LRPD Board has also received FEMA's approval for funds to assist in the Meronek Meadow's repair.  The final review  is now in the hands of the Wisconsin Emergency Management for their approval.















Zebra Mussels
 
With the large number of outside visitors coming to the lake this summer, we would encourage residents to be diligent in looking for invasive species as you remove your boats and docks this year.  A number of nearby lakes have zebra mussels.  So far, we have avoided getting these in our lake.













If you suspect that you have found these or other invasives, please contact the board at lrpd.board@gmail.com.
