Board Major Projects
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. 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.
Communications Committee (Rudy Ibric, Steve Libbey and Jennifer Reek) recommended updating the UNLMD website with a newer, user friendly back end. Updates to the site will be easier for us Board members but the look will remain the same. Contact Rudy or Jennifer for more information.
