WEAL Issues Press Release - Opposes Nagawicka Lake Proposed Pier 

City of Delafield’s Individual Permit Application for a Pier with multiple moorings on Nagawicki Lake within an Area of Special Natural Resource Interest.
 
Contested Case Hearing on St. John’s Bay Transient Pier Scheduled: June 17-21, 2024

Only two mapped and designated Areas of Special Natural Resource Interest, (ASNRI) are present on Nagawicki Lake. These special habitat areas provide food, shelter and breeding areas for fish and other aquatic life. Encroachment into these areas with pier structures, boat traffic, plant harvesters and other equipment can degrade these special areas and result in the loss of valuable fish and wildlife habitat. The two ASNRIs on Nagawicki Lake are delineated in orange on the attached Pier Proposal document.
