2024(Yes 2024) Government Shoreline Reimbursement Programs
If you are thinking of making runoff/shoreline improvements to your property in 2024 and would like to be considered for a partial reimbursement from the DNR and/or Sauk County, you will need to contact Mitch McCarthy from Sauk County by OCTOBER 31ST of this year. He can help you understand the application/approval/reimbursement process. You can contact him at:
Note that the new Lake Redstone Protection District Shoreline Improvement Reimbursement program takes effect in 2024 and does not require action in 2023.
Reminder that a property owner can potentially receive reimbursement from all three sources (LRPD, DNR, and Sauk County). You can find more information on the LRPD website.
Lake Redstone Dam Maintenance 2023
We have received several questions about the proposed dam maintenance for this year. I received the following information from Matt Stieve, Sauk County Parks Manager:
There will be no scheduled repairs to the Lake Redstone Dam in 2023. The next dam inspection will likely dictate whether any repairs will be needed. I hope to have that inspection in the spring.
If you still have questions, you can send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
2022 Survey Results
Last summer, the Lake Redstone Protection District conducted a survey of protection district taxpayers. 212 people responded. There were 15 multiple choice questions and two open ended questions.
A reminder that the LRPD focus is only water quality. Topics such as boating rules, housing/property use, and fishing are not part of the mission of the LRPD. However the survey results were shared with the DNR, Town of La Valle, Fishing Club, and Sauk Country representatives who were very interested in them.
Some of the questions on the survey were:
To what extent do you support or oppose the use of DNR approved chemicals for plant management in targeted areas?
How important to you are each of the various communication tools from Lake Redstone Protection District?
How concerned are you about the various issues listed related to water quality?

If you have comments or questions you can send an email to the LRPD Board: email@example.com
