Our largest undertaking to date, dredging the middle Bark River through much of Upper Nemahbin’s South East Bay has reached the point where we are able to move forward. The district will have to move fiber optic and high tension power lines. Our access abutting Panga’s parking lot will need a fully improved launch. The budget isn’t shy BUT will be fully and transparently explained at our 2020 annual meeting September 23rd, 7:00pm. Based on the cost annually for individual district tax payers, board members agree it is worth doing right.
Please attend, be heard and understand all the district is doing and intending to do from your board and volunteers who really are making a difference. Please also encourage your neighboring district members and friends to participate.

Hello everyone, The Board has been working hard on these major projects within the last few years.
Water Quality Committee (WQC) – (Dave Cone Chairman, Mike Donaubauer, Mark Beres, Kent Brooks and Jennifer Reek) With the removal of the Roller Mill Dam in 2013, the WQC has been meeting with WDNR staff to review and be advised on the permit process to Clean Up the Bark River directly above upper Bark River and mouth of Nemahbin Lake. To start the process to apply for permits, preliminary data was required on the amount of sediment present and the volume of sediment to be removed. During the late 2014 winter, depths and volume was calculated from a survey that was taken through the ice. A report was delivered on the details and sent to the WDNR for review. In response, we were asked to perform further analysis of the sediment which occurred in late spring of 2014. Nine samples were taken on the sediment and submitted to provide the data to fulfill a Solid Waste Permit requirements. From these results, WQC met with several WDNR staff members to discuss if the project is viable and how to proceed in the application of all permits required. WDNR staff stated that the Clean Up of the sediment is a viable project and to proceed with identifying a disposal site and funding in 2015. Contact Dave or Jennifer for more information.
CTH P bridge and weir reconstruction was presented at the Village open meeting. The weir will be constructed at the same elevation but will be extended longer to 41 feet to accommodate errors in flood plain modeling that impacts the Nemahbin Lakes. This project is to be completed in 2016.
New FEMA floodplain maps were published November 5, 2014 that affects the Nemahbin Lakes. See the link to FEMA website above. FYI, future FEMA maps will be issued after the CTH P reconstruction is completed that may reflect on further changes to the flood elevations by 2018.
USGS gage remains to be funded which is a positive for the lakes downstream of the Nagawicka dam. It is used during flooding events to monitor flood water and to record daily height/volume levels for future flood mapping. See the link on the left panel.
Communications Committee (Rudy Ibric, Steve Libbey and Jennifer Reek) The UNLMD website has been upgraded with a newer, user friendly back end. Updates to the site are now easier while having the look will remain the same. Please send any of your family pictures on the lake with a story to Jennifer or Rudy and we will refresh the content.
Please contact myself or any of the UNLMD Board Commissioners if you have any concerns or questions.
Jennifer Reek - firstname.lastname@example.org
Joan Beres - email@example.com
Feel free to send this email on to others on the lake for their information.
Thank you in advanced for your cooperation.
