LWIPA is Building a New Web Site - Check it Out


Ray's Beach to Close on 09/13/2021 until the Spring of 2022 for improvements. Read the Article.


WE DID IT!  The WI DNR challenged Lake Wissota to commit to 20 more Healthy Lake projects to bring the grant amount up to the max of $25,000 from the modest 5 projects worth $5,000 that we were awarded a Surface Water grant for this year.  Lake Wissota residents from all parts of the lake responded!  In fact, the interest in the Healthy Lakes projects and grants available was greater than the grant monies that were available. Thank you to all who responded to the challenge. 

We now have commitments to create 7 more diversions practices, 3 more rain gardens, 4 rock infiltration pits and 6 more native lakeshore plantings. Each of these projects when completed in the next 2 years will be reimbursed up to $1,000. All these practices will keep the water on the land and help improve the water quality and natural beauty of Lake Wissota. 

Our next challenge will be to have the most Healthy Lakes projects of any Wisconsin lake as the LWIPA continues to promote Healthy Lakes practices and apply for future grants. The next deadline to apply for a Healthy Lakes grant is August 15th so that we can submit the 2022 grant application by the September 1 deadline.  Check out the Healthy Lakes link to learn more and contact Barb Barrickman at babarrickman@gmail.com if you are interested.

Dear LWIPA Member and/or Lake Wissota Area Resident,

We hope that you are doing well. These past few weeks have been a challenge for everyone and like you, the Lake Association is adjusting to the circumstances. The spring/summer newsletter was mailed recently, and we wanted to update you about several events that were mentioned in the newsletter....
