  • 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
    The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources held a Public Informational Hearing on March 27, 2023 to provide an opportunity for the public to learn about the City of Delafield’s permit application to place a “transient” pier with multiple moorings for watercraft in St. Johns Bay, an Area of Special Natural Resource Interest, (ASNRI) on Nagawicki Lake. The Public Notice is attached.
    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.
